Hi, I’m Dominik Moritz
In September 2019, I will start as a researcher at Apple, working on data visualization and interactive systems for artificial intelligence. In 2020, I will start as an assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon University.
During my first year at UW, I received support from the Fulbright program. In 2013, I received my B.S. from Hasso Plattner Institute. I am a scholar of the German National Academic Foundation. I have worked with the Open Knowledge Foundation, Google Research, and Microsoft Research. Details are in my CV.
I created Draco, a formal model of visualization design with shareable design guidelines, formal reasoning over the design space, and visualization recommendation.
Falcon is an interactive system for real-time brushing and linking interactions among multiple visualizations of billion-record datasets.
Pangloss is a big-data visualization system that uses approximation to answer queries quickly. I developed Falcon with Danyel Fisher at MSR.

- I am starting at Apple in September and as an assistant professor at CMU in 2020.
- I passed my final exam (thesis defense).
- I passed my general exam and am now a PhD candidate.
- Draco receives the best paper award at InfoVis 2018.
- I am organizing the DSIA Workshop at VIS 2018 in Berlin.
- Vega-Lite is featured by Nature as a visualization tool for interactive and reproductible publishing.
- Vega-Lite 2.1 released with support for geographic maps.
- Vega-Lite is used for illustrations in “Making Data Visual” by Danyel Fisher and Miriah Meyer.
