Project -- Transpire: Transparent Model-Driven Discovery of Streaming Patterns

Dr. Aritra Dasgupta, Ph.D. is a research scientist in the National Security Directorate at PNNL. His research focuses on developing and evaluating novel visualization methods and techniques for helping analysts explore, analyze, and make sense of complex data. His past and current research projects involve high-dimensional data exploration techniques, visual analytics, and communication techniques for climate science, and privacy-preserving data visualization. He is currently leading the Transpire project under the AIM initiative, where the focus is on bridging the gap between machine learning models and human cognition through transparent visual analytics techniques that increase human interpretability of complex patterns.

Aritra received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of North Carolina-Charlotte in December 2012. Prior to joining PNNL in April 2015, he was first a post-doctoral researcher and then a Research Assistant Professor at New York University, where his research was funded by National Science Foundation’s DataONE initiative.

Dr. Dasgupta has published his research in leading visualization journals such as Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (IEEE TVCG) and Computer Graphics Forum (CGF), and has presented his work at conferences such as InfoVis (2010, 2011, 2015), Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) (2014), and EuroVis (2012, 2014, 2015). Dr. Dasgupta has also served as a reviewer for these journals and conferences and is an international program committee member for the VAST conference.
