Following a PhD in Ecology and Evolution, Greg developed his interests in science, software and visualisation at Microsoft Research and then the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford. His current position at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM), at the University of Warwick, has allowed him to expand his capacity as an interdisciplinary researcher, bringing new social and cultural influences into his work. At CIM Greg works alongside colleagues trained in social science, computer science, architecture, media theory, ethnography, psychology, geography and a range of interdisciplinary approaches to research.
Greg has a focus on information visualisation - in terms of design, methods and theory - and works on advancing the understanding of visualisation as a communication medium and advancing visualisation techniques for analytical tools and communication devices. He has an ongoing interest in what a ‘full stack’ understanding of visualisation would be, e.g. a holistic understanding of visualisation as a joint function of data, design, perception, cognition, cultures, and socio-technical systems.
