Marian Dörk

I am an information visualization researcher living in Berlin and working as a research professor (Forschungsprofessor) at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule Potsdam). I am exploring novel uses of interactive visualizations to support a wide range of information practices.

During my PhD research at the University of Calgary (2008-2012) in the InnoVis group and Interactions Lab, I designed and studied interactive visualizations to support exploratory forms of information seeking. My advisors were Sheelagh Carpendale and Carey Williamson. I have been a postdoc at Newcastle University (2012-2013) in Culture Lab's Digital Interaction group working on the PATINA project. I have also worked on visual interfaces with researchers and engineers at Google, Microsoft Research, IBM Research, and Universidad de Chile. Before doing my PhD, I studied Computational Visualistics at Universität Magdeburg, and have offered web solutions for more than ten years.

I enjoy riding my bike in the city, growing food in a community garden, and encountering streetart. I sporadically update my visual journal, photostream, and status. I once played with animated GIFs and thresholding.
