Marian Dörk

I am a Research Professor for Information Visualization at the Institute for Urban Futures of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam. My research and teaching center around novel visualizations in support of exploratory information practices in a variety of contexts. I am co-directing the Urban Complexity Lab, a transdisciplinary research group situated between design, computing, and humanities. One particular focus of our recent work has been the visualization of cultural collections.

During my PhD research at the University of Calgary (2008-2012) in the InnoVis group and Interactions Lab, I designed and evaluated the potential of visualizations for exploratory forms of information seeking. As a postdoc at Newcastle University, Culture Lab (2012-2013), I worked on interactive visualizations of books and text documents. Over the years, I also had the chance to collaborate with researchers and engineers at Google, Microsoft Research, IBM Research, and Universidad de Chile. Before my PhD, I studied Computational Visualistics at the Universität Magdeburg (2003-2008).
