Hi, I’m Dominik Moritz
I am on the research faculty market this year. Please get in touch if you are hiring.
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.
