Portrait of Dave Brown

Dave Brown

Principal Engineer


I am a Principal Software Engineer at Microsoft Research, Redmond and currently working in the Visualization and Interactive Data Analysis (VIDA) Group.

My research focus is on human-computer interaction with data, specifically visualization in both 2D and 3D using multiple device form-factors including large-format touchscreens, smartphones, mixed-reality, and virtual-reality headsets. I also focus on techniques for interactive storytelling with data, including techniques for collaboration with multiple users and devices.

My hope is that this research will help people discover, understand and communicate insights in data more effectively.
