Hi! I'm Rosa Romero-Gómez

I'm a postdoctoral research scholar in the Astrolavos Lab, a computer security group at Georgia Institute of Technology. My research experience and interests include: Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design, Information Visualization, and Human Supervisory Control. In particular, my work involves research into the work practice of human analysts in operations centers and the design of visualization tools to facilitate the exploration and sense making activities inherent in those environments.

Alarm Trend Catcher

Purpose

This alarm visualization approach aims at assisting the forecasting of power grid operations. This approach seeks to provide a type of interactive visual guide onto the alarms and thus directs human operators toward the problems to face next. Particularly, given both the diversity of attributes of an alarm, and the need of exploring different volumes of alarm information over time, it combines radial visualizations, multiple views, and aggregation mechanisms as principal visualization design techniques.

Multi-view visualizations for EM

Purpose

This visualization approach proposes a multi- view and multi-abstraction-level visualization approach for emergency communities of volunteers. In particular, it combines time-oriented visualizations, space-filling visualization techniques, interaction mechanisms and coordinated maps to support community participation as well as collaborative and individual sense making.

A Design Provenance Visualization Environment

Purpose

This is an interactive web-based tool to assist managers and lead designers making sense of collections of design provenance information from diverse design processes.
