Personal profile

Personal information

I have a PhD in Digital Media from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa and do research on Information Visualization and visual forms of storytelling. I'm focused on researching and identifying the best techniques to incorporate narrative elements in a visualizations and which elements provide an effective storytelling for visualizations. I'm also interested in researching evaluation/assessment methodologies for visualization.
