Smarter Energy Initiatives at IBM Research

I worked with IBM Research as a Research Engineer and Data Artist to produce visualizations for some of IBM’s smart-energy initiatives. My work was majorly concentrated on user-experience research, interaction design and engineering. I worked with the Smarter Energy Group to create real-time interactive visualizations for data coming from a smart electrical micro-grid which was deployed in specific sites [Project Link]. These responsive interfaces are currently deployed in a settings with large touchscreen-kiosks as well as computers, tablets and phones across various test-sites in Southeast Asia. I worked with D3.js, Ember.js and Django during this period. Due to various non-disclosure agreements, I am not able post more information about my work here.

Another project that I worked on, involved modeling demand-response methodologies into interfaces by using interactive visualizations about household energy consumption. The aim here was to motivate the user and provide him/her with incentives for reducing the energy consumption. Below are some screenshots of the final working front-end that I designed.
