Masood Masoodian
...visualization, interactive media, interaction design!

I lead the Aalto Visual Communication Design group. I am interested in designing interactive visualizations to provide effective means of understating information by ordinary people in areas such as health, energy, and sustainability. I am also interested in design thinking and trying to better understand the design process, for instance by investigating the role of imagery in the visual design process.
