Hi, I'm Sarah! (she/her)
I'm a PhD candidate supervised by Benjamin Bach and Uta Hinrichs in the Visual+Interactive Data group at the University of Edinburgh, researching responsive geographic visualization—how to make maps, cartograms and other geographic visualizations work across devices and screen sizes. I have an MSc in Design Informatics (2019), also from the University of Edinburgh, and a BSc in Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences (2017) from the University of Twente in the Netherlands. I wad previously the Knowledge Director of the Data Visualization Society (2021-2022). I have also worked as a map/visualization designer and developer on several projects.
