I worked as a research assistant with Dr. Bias for the data visualization project of Emerson Process Management company. I did ethnographic study including interview and observation in the control rooms of chemical plants and labs.
Based on the data we collected from the control rooms, I analyzed the data needs of control room operators. With our goal being to improve the display of information to them, to assist in making excellent, timely decisions, I redesigned the interface of digital automation system. Because of the NDA requirement, I cannot post details here. (The image comes from Emerson Process Management’s website )
