In my dissertation, I plan to design, implement, and evaluate visualizations that support the tasks of social science researchers and adapt those visualizations to interactive surfaces. My research questions aim to
- investigate how interactive visualizations can support social science researchers in their workflow,
- analyze how visualizations can be adapted to tablets and large vertical displays, and
- identify the benefits and limitations of visualizations on interactive surfaces.
I aim to contribute on investigating how can visualization support problem-solving in social science research, as well as extending the solution space of multi-touch interaction techniques, and identifying the advantages and disadvantages of performing visual tasks on interactive surfaces in comparison to desktop displays.
