Angela Zoss, Ph.D.
Interim Head, Assessment & User Experience Strategy Department
In December 2021, I became the Interim Head of the Assessment and User Experience Strategy Department. Prior to that, I worked as the Assessment and Data Visualization Analyst in the AUX Strategy department, offering support for special data projects and providing leadership and project management for a variety of teams related to library reporting, gathering user data, and making improvements to library spaces and services.
Before joining AUX Strategy, I worked as the Data Visualization Coordinator for Data and Visualization Services (now the Center for Data and Visualization Sciences). Since 2012, I have created many library workshops and short courses on visualization; consulted with students, researchers, and faculty members on research projects; and helped to introduce visualization concepts and tools into a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses. I hold a Master of Science in Communication from Cornell University and a doctorate in Information Science from Indiana University. My research spans a wide range of subjects and methods — from qualitative analysis of interview and observational data to pattern detection in large, quantitative datasets.
