    Ana Jofre, PhD, Canada. Ana Jofre received her PhD in Physics from the University of Toronto, did Post-doctoral work at NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) in Gaithersburg MD, and taught -and did research – at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte for six years before transitioning her career towards the arts. She then completed her MFA at OCAD University in Toronto. Her publications and conference presentations cover a wide range of intellectual interests, from physics to critical theory, and she has exhibited her artwork extensively. Her creative and research interests include figurative sculpture, the aesthetics of camp and of the uncanny, public pedagogy, human-computer interaction, and data visualization. She is currently employed as a post-doctoral fellow in the data visualization lab at OCAD University in Toronto, and will be, as of fall 2017, faculty at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Utica NY.

    Ana Jofre’s interdisciplinary practice is grounded in a diverse academic background, which includes a PhD in Physics from the University of Toronto (Canada). Ana started pursuing art as a professional practice and exhibiting her work while serving as a full-time faculty member in the Department of Physics at UNC Charlotte, where she conducted and published research in experimental biophysics. At this time, she also completed a BFA with a con- centration in ceramics at the same university. A romantic at heart, she found herself more motivated to make a cultural contribution to society than to collect and publish additional data. She recently completed the MFA program at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto, Canada. Her current practice integrates knowledge and methodologies from various disciplines to create aesthetic experiences of ‘presence’.
