Project Title: 
Large-Scale Interactive Scientific Visualization

This project develops and studies visualization, computer graphics, and human computer interaction techniques for analyzing scientific datasets. Datasets for the work come from a variety of collaborators, including researchers studying medical device design, fluid simulation, and bioinformatics.  Using the scientific research questions of these collaborators as a driving force, this project investigates new approaches to data analysis based on interactive, exploratory visualization. The work utilizes emerging technologies, such as 3D trackers, custom multi-touch computer interfaces, and a 30-foot wide stereoscopic display, available in the LCSE-MSI Visualization Laboratory. Ultimately, this work can help us to better understand how to explore and analyze the complex large-scale datasets that result from high-performance simulations, helping scientists to both evaluate and generate new hypotheses while leveraging the power of the human visual system and interactive tools.
