Brittany Kondo

Graduate Student

I completed my master’s degree in computer science at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). My main research interests lie in the areas of human-computer interaction, interface design and information visualization. My master’s thesis work focused on designing new interaction techniques for exploring changes and navigating time in different types of time-varying information visualizations.
