Alex Ivanov
PhD Candidate, Interactive Arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University, Canada

I'm a PhD Candidate at Simon Fraser University, BC, Canada. My interests are in Visualization and Information Design for Web-based Collaboration (Electronic Brainstorming, Group Decision Support Systems, Online Communities, etc.).

One of my key research questions is how to design for user engagement that capitalizes on social psychology and ludic behaviour, on the one hand, and minimalist (Tufte-esque) information visualization, on the other. Hence my interest in what has been termed Social Visualization by people such as Tom Erickson at IBM.

I also hold an MA in Advertising from The University of Texas at Austin, and have worked in the advertising industry in Canada, the US, and Bulgaria.
