Posted

Alex Endert

Speaker 2012; Alum, '12

Alex Endert recently received his Ph.D. at Virginia Tech and his focus is visual analytics, information visualization, and how these apply to large displays. His contributions to visual analytics include "semantic interaction", combining the massive-data foraging abilities of statistical models with the sense-making abilities of analysts to support visual data exploration. He has also produced published research in areas such as visual perception, large display interaction techniques, cyber analytics, embodied interaction, human learning, and collaboration. Currently, he is focused on finding ways the user and the computer system can co-create knowledge by teaching and learning from each other.
