I am a PhD candidate at University at Buffalo, working with Dr. Oliver Kennedy. I completed my Masters in Computer Science from University at Buffalo in June 2018 and Masters in Software Systems from Birla Institute of Technology in December 2013.

Datasets used for analysis might include incomplete, inconsistent, missing data. Data quality management has been studied extensively with focus on tabular data. Lot of work has been done in terms of data curation and imputation, although visualization aspect of data quality management remains fairly unexplored. My PhD research focuses on visualizing the imperfections in these datasets in order to help users analyze and interpret data and guide them to make informed decisions. We explore how different visualization techniques affect perceived data quality, accuracy and decision confidence through IRB approved user studies and interviews with users/analysts.
