"For what is knowledge duly weighed?
Knowledge is strong, but love is sweet; Yea all the progress he had made Was but to learn that all is small Save love, for love is all in all."
-Christina Georgina Rossetti
I graduated from the Computer Science Department in May 2005 with a certificate in Cognitive Science. Broadly, my areas of interest include: graphics, computer-human interaction, and computer and human vision. My larger interests include the visual arts and the influence of technology on society, especially the underprivileged and marginalized.
I'm particularly interested in how visual cognition relates to art and visual presentation of information, from clip art to radiology slides, in both traditional media and digital forms. My publications have focused on non-photorealistic rendering and human eye movements.
