Christopher M. Collins

I am an associate professor and Canada Research Chair in Linguistic Information Visualization at the Ontario Tech University, where I lead the vialab, a group of 12 trainees at various levels of study. My research focus is interdisciplinary, combining information visualization and human-computer interaction with natural language processing to address the challenges of linguistic information management and the problems of information overload. My publications, including the DocuBurst document content visualization system, have helped to open a new and thriving area of research in “Linguistic Visualization”. My work has been published in many venues, including IEEE VIS, ACM CHI, ACM ITS, EuroVis, and IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, as well as being featured in popular media such as the Toronto Star, New York Times Magazine, and CBC Radio.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Toronto in 2010. I have collaborated with the Innovis group at the University of Calgary, the Visual Communications Lab at IBM’s TJ Watson Research Laboratory and was recently a visiting researcher at Microsoft Research in Redmond, USA. I maintain fruitful research collaborations with exciting companies, including my work with Ontario-based Quillsoft Ltd. and Chatham Labs. 

I hold several positions within the information visualization community, including on the organizing committee IEEE Vis Conference. I am a past member of the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee Executive and serve as an associate editor for both IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications and ACM Trans. on Interactive Intelligent Systems,

Interested in studying with me?

I am actively building the vialab research group at Ontario Tech − if you are passionate about HCI and Information Visualization, and you are seeking a great place for graduate studies in computer science, please contact me.  I receive many requests to join the lab. To make sure you stand out, please consider including in your first message a description of why you want to study with me – what is it about the research at the vialab that interests you? What relevant skills and experience do you bring?
