Emma Slayton joined the University Libraries as the CLIR Fellow for Data Visualization and Curation in November. Her postdoc project focuses on supporting data visualization techniques and best practices throughout the different departments around CMU. At the University Libraries, she plans to offer workshops and other content to promote the use of various data visualization methods, tools, and techniques. Emma will also be offering a series of open office hours where university faculty, staff, and students can book time to discuss data visualization.
Emma recently finished work on her PhD in archaeology at Leiden University in the Netherlands. As an archaeologist, Emma focused on using computer modeling to hypothesize the location of early canoe routes in the Caribbean. She also has experience working with GIS and other data visualization tools.
