I am currently a Data Visualization Fellow at Harvard University with the Center for International Development since summer 2013. My research consists in designing, implementing and evaluating novel data visualization tools for the web. Previously, I was a post-doc in Jean-Daniel Fekete, at INRIA AVIZ. I defended a PhD in Computer Science at INSA de Lyon and LIRIS Lab, France, in 2010.
My main project is The Atlas of Economic Complexity, which is an interactive website to visualize international trade data. It allows the exploration and communication of economic indicators for more than 120 countries and 700 products over the past 50 years. It uses various visualization techniques such as treemaps, stacked graphs or networks to display growth dynamics and opportunities.
My focus is building and evaluating new tools to better explore, understand and communicate data. As the Web is now pervasive, I believe those tools should be using web standards for everyone to use them, now and in the future. I am interested in various application domains, from economics to sport data. Learn more..
The IEEE Conference on Information Visualization (InfoVis) and the ACM Conference on Human Interaction (CHI) are the main annual venues for my research. If you want to know more, look at all publications.
