Jock Mackinlay
Director Visual Analysis, Tableau Software

Jock Mackinlay is Tableau Software’s Director of Visual Analysis. Jock has a Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University, where he pioneered the automatic design of graphical presentations of relational information. He joined Xerox PARC in 1986, where he collaborated with the User Interface Research Group to develop many novel applications of computer graphics for information access, coining the term “Information Visualization.” Much of the fruits of this research can be seen in his book, “Readings in Information Visualization: Using Vision to Think” (Morgan Kauffman, written and edited with Stuart K. Card and Ben Shneiderman). Jock is a co-inventor of numerous software patents related to information visualization.
