Kristi was part of CDUX from September 2013 to February 2017, and she served as our research group's Co-Director. She also worked as a visualization consultant and research programmer at the University of Oregon, working with the College of Arts and Science research support team. Her research has been focused on methods for improving visualization techniques by adding qualitative information concerning uncertainties present throughout the entire scientific pipeline. This work includes researching statistical measures of uncertainty, error, and confidence levels, and translating the semantic meaning of these measures into visual metaphors. In addition to research in visualization, she is working to bring visualization technologies to the University through classes, workshop, seminars and private consultation. She received her PhD in 2010 and MS in 2003 from the University of Utah, and her BS in 2000 from the University of Oregon in computer science and fine art.
