ABOUT ME

I am an Associate Professor at the University of the District of Columbia. I received Ph.D degree in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in May 2010. My main research areas include HCI, Visual Analytics, Information Visualization, and Big Data Analytics. In the past, I have published many scientific research papers. Currently, he concentrates more on Visual Analytics that is a research area where visualization and analytics face together. In Visual Analytics, HCI (Human Computer Interaction) paradigm is deeply considered by researchers by increasing the overall performance of analyzing complex dataset and digging out unknown, but useful knowledge.
