Monika Schwarz


Dr Monika Schwarz is a research fellow at Monash University’s SensiLab, where she focuses on data analysis, interactive data visualisation as well as data physicalisation. Monika holds a PhD in archaeology, with over 15 years of experience in that field, and a Masters degree in Information Technology. Currently she combines skills from her two careers in archaeology and information technology by turning 19th century convict records into interactive data visualisations. She also draws on her private passion for sewing and fabrics to create ‘data embroideries’, with a particular focus on female narratives. In her work she tries to reconcile predominantly male subjects, like mathematics and algorithms, with the traditionally more female spheres of embroidery and crafting.
