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.

7 Oct 2018VDL Indoor Air Quality Research Featured in The Salt Lake Tribune
If you could see how chores impact your home’s air quality, you might do them differently! This piece is based on new research by VDL members Jimmy Moore, Pascal Goffin, Miriah Meyer, and the School of Computing’s Jason Wiese to help local families see the unseen with indoor air quality senors. The one article your child doesn’t want you to read!
This work appears in the September issue of Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (IMWUT) and will be presented at UbiComp2018 in Singapore.
