Miriah Meyer: Seeing Data

Miriah Meyer
In data visualization, what we really need to do is move beyond thinking that visualization is just about pretty pictures.
— Miriah Meyer | Assistant Professor, School of Computing, University of Utah

PopTech 2013 Science Fellow Miriah Meyer explains how data visualization can be more concise, practical and scientifically useful, and still be aesthetically pleasing. 

Her visualizations combine novel mathematical models with principles from a range of fields including perception, design and human-computer interaction. Meyer was named a Microsoft Research Faculty Fellow and to MIT Technology Review’s Top 35 Innovators Under 35. Meyer’s work allows scientists to understand their underlying data in detail and to develop new hypotheses and insights.
