MIT DUSP Explorer

Data, User Experience.

Working with NiJeL, I assisted with UX design for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s DUSP Explorer. This interactive set of 4 data visualizations mapped research collaborations among the faculty at the Department of Urban Studies + Planning. As NiJeL’s Information Designer, I helped the student and faculty led team at DUSP research additional design options to compliment the initial rounds of design and development work done by Ben Golder, a DUSP Masters Student at the time. In addition, I led efforts to design on-boarding instructions, textual details, and the Projects-based hive plot visualization, allowing users to explore connections by research project, faculty, and topic.
