Jonathan Roberts

Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, Bangor University

I am a senior lecturer at the School of Computer Science, Bangor University, U.K. I joined Bangor University in 2007, and I lead the Visualization and Medical Graphics Group. I was previously a lecturer and then a Senior Lecturer at the University of Kent. I have research expertise in Visual Analytics, Information Visualization, Exploratory Visualization, Multiple Coordinated Views, Virtual Environments and Haptics.

Please see my personal page ( for full details of career, publications and interests.

My hypothesis: "By displaying the data in several different ways, and allowing the user to highly interact with it, then the user gains a better understanding of their data". I use alternative representations, multiple coordinated views, and look to move beyond the desktop to use other forms of display and Human-computer interactions (e.g., table top displays and tangible artifacts).

I instigated and chaired Coordinated & Multiple View conference series that ran 2003,4,5,6,7 and author of the popular "State of the Art in Coordinated Multiple Views" paper. I also run the HeritageTogether project.
