Investing in the financial market has never been easier with online brokers and market news only a tap away for individual investors. However, behavioral finance theories show that individual investors often suffer from decision biases that could negatively impact their investment return. In this project, I will leverage data visualization on personal trade history data to help investors improve their decision making.
At the Information Interfaces Lab, computing technologies are developed that help people take advantage of information to enrich their lives. The lab group develops ways to help people understand information via user interface design, information visualization, peripheral awareness techniques and embodied agents. The goal is to help people make better judgments by learning from all the information available to them.
