We are a team of visualization researchers at the University of Utah. Our interests include the process of designing and developing visualizations, visualization for biology, visualization frameworks, and, more generally, visualization of big, heterogeneous, and complex datasets.
VDL is part of the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute and the School of Computing.

Jen Rogers successfully defended her dissertation on “Traceability in Design-Oriented Visualization Research”. Jen was co-advised by Alex Lex and Miriah Meyer, with Marina Kogan, Chris Johnson, and Uta Hinrichs serving on the committee.
Jen is moving to Boston to join Remco Chang’s lab at Tufts as a PostDoc. Congrats, and good luck with your next steps!
