I led the design of Tamr's DataHub to help CDOs, CIOs, architects and data consumers to easily access their logical entity types (e.g., customers, suppliers, products). I worked with a small team using an agile, mobile-first lifecycle.
I served as lead designer (working with Ben Fry of Fathom) and product manager for Catalog Beta, taking the product from concept to prototype to market. Catalog is a web app that helps organizations understand their data in their social context.
I was interviewed to discuss Catalog and "dark data" by Professor Roberto Zicari of ODBMS.org.
I have been leading the design of Unify--the core offering from Tamr. Unify combines machine learning and expert-sourcing to automate most of the work of integrating big data.
The Department of Veterans Affairs
I served as UX consultant in developing a prototype for the Department of Veterans Affairs that offers an efficient visualization of 20K healthcare facilities around the country.
I designed and developed ThoughtLog as a free, conceptual macOS app for the (re)collection of spontaneous thought. It eschews notes, titles, tags & folders. Like Notational Velocity, it offers a very low interaction cost. Rather than placing your thoughts in a document, it places them in a collection that it automatically separates, sorts, filters and time-stamps, while ever-resetting the point of insertion.
I designed and developed Char as a conceptual text-editor/engine with a scriptable, physics-enabled, Zoomable User-Interface (ZUI). I completed this work for my Masters in questioning the ubiquitous conventions of text manipulation, taking inspiration from ideas in distributed cognition and the role of causality in interface-design.
I co-created TurkGate, or Grouping and Access Tools for External surveys (for use with Amazon Mechanical Turk), with Adam Darlow during my PhD at Brown. TurkGate is for researchers that recruit through Mechanical Turk but run their studies on other sites. It provides better control and verification of Mechanical Turk workers' access to an external site. TurkGate was created for the purpose of conducting psychological experiments. As such, it provides easy-to-use, research-oriented features not included with Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Per Second Press
I co-designed and developed the Per Second Press website with Vi Khi Nao, receiver of the John Hawkes and Feldman Prizes in Fiction and the Kim Ann Arstark memorial Award in poetry.
