Baumer, Eric

Informatics, Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences

Baumer is completing his doctorate degree under the supervision of Bill Tomlinson. His research in the Interactive Animation Lab led to the development of a new Web site that makes readers of political blogs more aware of underlying subtexts in those blogs. metaViz, analyzes metaphors and then connects them to broader categories, like sports or parenting.

Baumer says he hopes to encourage people to look not only at what is being said overtly, but also understand the context behind the words.
