I am Nafisa Anzum, a Master's student at the *University of Waterloo* in
Canada. For my Master's thesis,* I am developing a software called
GraphWrangler, to help users extract graph out of tabular data (e.g., CSV
files, spreadsheets, or relational databases).* Specifically, GraphWrangler
is meant to serve two purposes: (1) help users visualize and see their
tabular as a graph; and (2) transform their tabular data into a graph
format so that they can move their tabular data into the format of a graph
software, such as a graph database or a graph visualization software. We
recently wrote a demonstration paper, and have a video
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k92Qk6vuIsU&feature=youtu.be>, where we
describe the initial version of the software.

*I am now trying to see how I can turn this research prototype into
something more useful for actual users *in the rest of my thesis work. So *I
am doing a user study as part of a study and trying to talk to actual users
who extract graphs out of tabular data* (or other forms of data) and do
graph exploration on this data. I want to understand their use cases and
how GraphWrangler can turn into something that can benefit them, and
hopefully get their feedback.

If you are such a user, would you be willing to chat with me, to
participate in the study? *Your experiences and insights would be very
instrumenta*l in improving the GraphWrangler system.

*Please email me (Nafisa Anzum, nan...@uwaterloo.ca <nan...@uwaterloo.ca>)*
with if you would be willing to help and I really appreciate your time
reading this email.
