Cindy XiongDesign Research Fellow Alumnus


Cindy Xiong is a PhD student in Cognitive Psychology. She conducts behavioral and psychophysical experiments to study how our visual perceptual system enables us to view, interpret and draw conclusions from visualized data. Her work is interdisciplinary and spans across cognitive psychology, vision science, communication, and visualization.

People increasingly rely on visualizations to answer questions and make decisions about data. But how do people perceive visualized data? What cognitive processes come into play? To what extent are people subject to cognitive biases when interpreting visualizations? How can we leverage the strengths and shortcomings of our visual cognition system to help people understand data better and make better decisions?
