Hi, I’m Dominik Moritz
I’m faculty at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and an ML researcher at Apple . I design and build interactive systems for visualization and analysis. At CMU, I co-lead the Data Interaction Group.
I received my PhD from the Paul G. Allen School at the University of Washington, where I worked with Jeff Heer and Bill Howe in the Interactive Data Lab and the Database Group.

- NSH 2602B
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.
I am the co-author of Vega-Lite, a high-level visualization grammar for rapid specification of interactive, multi-view graphics.
