Research Interests

The research interests of the Scientific Visualization group are primarily focused on foundations and practical applications of topological and other approaches to Scientific Visualization. Here, our goal is to generate intuitive and insightful visualizations from abstract data from a variety of sources, such as for example numerical simulation or physical experiment. Our group specializes in vector and tensor field visualization using integration-based methods; however, we are interested in general methods and applications of visualization, and are also investigating the connection between visualization and High-Performance Computing to identify visual analysis methods that are suitable for very large and complex data sets. Recently, we have been considering the application of topological methods to the analysis of multi-variate datasets.
