I'm Erin Dahlgren, a visualization designer for data scientists and research labs.

The visualizations I create are like maps. They contain rich detail, and they're designed for deep analytical tasks. They help you:

  • Create more ambitious work
  • Build an impressive portfolio
  • Grow your reputation in your niche
  • Attract more funding
  • Gain the trust of dream clients

Before collaborating with me, you should know what my values are. I want to live in a world where it's normal for research methods and results to be open source, because I believe that leads to more accountability, opportunity, and freedom. That's why I help the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), the world's largest scientific computing society, award badges to research papers backed by accessible, functional, and reusable code.

If you'd like to know if we'd have fun working together, read some of the humorous things I've written. If you think I'm crazy or just don't get it, no hard feelings. Maybe it just wasn't meant to be.

Otherwise, if you like what you're reading and you're interested in how we could collaborate, I currently have two openings for new projects starting in January 2020. To snag a spot, start by introducing yourself right here:
