I’m a senior data scientist at eBay/PayPal. The work I do looks closely at data generated by mobile users. I’ve worked on the WHERE PlaceGraph (http://site.where.com/blog/the-where-placegraph/), a tool that reveals the connections between places based on searches and checkins.

In general, I do data visualization with big data, using Python and R for analysis, and Processing and javascript/canvas for display/interaction.

I’m also an accomplished violinist. My interest in music led me to work on creating The Echo Nest’s Music Analyzer, which listens to music the way people do, and extracts summary data that can be used to find out how danceable a song is. I co-created visualizer.fm, a site that synchs music to various visualizations of the Echo Nest’s analysis data. It’s hypnotic and interesting.

This talk will focus on how to use several open-source frameworks to build such visualizations. Read more.
