Michelle Borkin,Visualization & HCI Scientist, Founder
Michelle Borkin works on the development of novel visualization techniques and tools to enable new insights and discoveries in data. She works across disciplines to bring together computer scientists, doctors, and astronomers to collaborate on new analysis and visualization techniques. Her research has resulted in the development of novel computer assisted diagnostics in cardiology, scalable visualization solutions for large network data sets, and novel astrophysical visualization tools and discoveries.
Prior to joining Northeastern University as an Assistant Professor in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences in 2015, Michelle was a postdoctoral research fellow in computer science at the University of British Columbia, an associate in computer science at Harvard University, and a research fellow at Brigham & Women’s Hospital. She received her PhD in applied physics at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in 2014, as well as a master’s degree in applied physics and a bachelor’s degree in astronomy and astrophysics and physics from Harvard University. She was previously a National Science Foundation graduate research fellow, a National Defense Science and Engineering graduate fellow, and a TED fellow.
To help others explore data more deeply, Michelle along with Alyssa Goodman, Chris Beaumont, and Tom Robitaille founded the glue software project in 2012 and then glue solutions, inc. in 2019.
