I am currently an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Macalester College. My research explores topics in 3D human-computer interaction, data visualization, and computer graphics. In particular, I answer questions such as how to interact with spatial data more effectively using new computer interfaces including virtual reality displays, multi-touch input, and 3D body tracking.
I received my masters and PhD at the University of Minnesota under Daniel Keefe with the Interactive Visualization Lab. Previously, I have worked as a software developer for Ultralingua, inc. and received a B.A. in Computer Science from Carleton College.
When I am not teaching, I play water polo with the Minnesota Masters Water Polo Team, create art in metal and wood, cook, and enjoy canoeing and hiking with my wife, Becky.
