Innovations in Visualization

Jo Vermeulen

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the InnoVis group at the Interactions Lab at the University of Calgary, where I work with Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale. In 2015, I did a postdoc at the HCI Centre of the University of Birmingham, working with Dr. Russell Beale.

I received my PhD in Computer Science in 2014 from Hasselt University, working with Dr. Karin Coninx and Dr. Kris Luyten at the EDM HCI group. My PhD dissertation investigated how to design for intelligibility and control in ubiquitous computing environments, and was awarded with the 2015 FWO - IBM Innovation Award; this award is given annually to the best Belgian PhD dissertation in computer science. My work has received a number of awards and nominations at human–computer interaction venues, including a Best Paper Award at DIS 2014 and a Best Paper Honorable Mention Award at CHI 2013.
