While information is a crucial part of people's everyday lives, many people find that access to information via today's technologies is awkward, stressful, and overly intrusive in their lives. The problem is not with the information itself, but rather with its volume and the unwieldy ways currently provided for interacting with digital content. My research focus is to create interactive information visualizations so that they support people's everyday work and social practices as they interact with information. In this paper I will provide an eclectic overview of my research, particularly featuring the research done by my PhD students.
