At Gramener, we each took up a personal data challenge over the month of December. Since my family at home had been fighting over how to share efforts in the kitchen, I chose to track the food we cooked at home across three meals everyday. At the end of the month, I visualised our meals as ‘Thali Charts’ inspired by Dear Data and a fascinating history of public awareness campaigns on diets.

Here’s a zoomable view of each section of the chart for easier reading:
Back in October of 2020, I had the chance to attend VIS 2020. Attend (defined in 2020)= tuning into a YouTube live stream and interacting with other participants over chat and a Discord server.
VIS 2020 was the largest data visualization conference hosted under IEEE, since it combined three areas- VAST, INFOVIS and SCIVIS.

What was done? 5 month project to help working mothers identify dietary issues in their families and to introduce diet change.

Key Outcomes: Created features to make chatbot experiences less mechanical and more accessible.
Making dashboards at Gramener and data stories from home, where I live with my family of designers.
