Herstory: New Media Futures

Colleen Bushell is the interface designer of the first visual browser, Mosaic, a technology that led to the popularization of Internet browsing in the early ’90s. She pioneered digital visualization techniques as one of the first designers at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) Visualization Group. As a Chicago native daughter, the Midwest influenced her visual approach to the design of information. Bushell began her undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois in graphic design and additionally included fine arts courses. She was cofounder and director of product development at RiverGlass Inc., a spin-off company from the University of Illinois–Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and now holds a senior research scientist position at UIUC’s Applied Research Institute developing visual analytics for biomedical research and health care. She leads the visualization research effort for the National Institutes of Health’s Center of Excellence in Big Data at UIUC’s Institute of Genomic Biology.

Bushell collaborates with doctors and researchers at the Mayo Clinic, Northwestern University, and UIUC, discovering biomarkers and integrating genomic and microbiome data into clinical practice. She was a tenured professor at UIUC in graphic design and continues her interest in teaching by working with students through NCSA’s student innovation program. She and her husband, Peter, and their two sons and daughter live in Mahomet, Illinois. She is a featured contributor in New Media Futures: The Rise of Women in the Digital Arts (2018) published by the University of Illinois Press.
