Innovations in Visualization

Jagoda Walny

Jagoda is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the at the University of Calgary working with Dr. Wesley Willett and Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale on an open energy data and information visualization project. (August 2017 - present)

Jagoda completed her PhD under the supervision of Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale researching how everyday visual thinking methods such as sketching can inform information visualization design. (Completed December 2016)
