"Representation for manipulation" - Bill Verplank
In my Ph.D, I study how “extreme users”, e.g. legal professionals and scientists, create and manage complex information. By taking on a principled and theory-driven perspective, I design new representations for them to see, understand and learn, and new manipulations for them to explore, change and create.
