Arvind Satyanarayan
Hi, I'm Arvind Satyanarayan.

I'm a Computer Science Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University, working with Jeff Heer and the Interactive Data Lab. My research seeks to lower the threshold for design, with a focus on data visualization. I'm also an advisor for Apropose, Inc., a Bay Area startup I co-founded to build data-driven web design tools.

I graduated from UC San Diego, and worked with Jim Hollan to study interactions with wall-sized displays. At UCSD's Revelle College, I helped create an internship program and served as a Senator, a Resident Advisor, and an Orientation Leader.

Years ago, I wrote plugins and tutorials for Movable Type, and helped fork Melody.
