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.

We’re also saying goodbye to three members: Pascal Goffin has wrapped up his PostDoc. Dylan Wootton graduated this spring and spent the summer working with us on various projects. He will be starting a job with Microsoft in September. Jochen Görtler is returning to his home institution,...
31 May 2019VDL at EuroVis in Porto
Several VDL members will be at EuroVis in Porto. In addition to the PIs, Carolina Nobre and Samuel Quinan will be attending. Sam will present the full paper on implicit discretization in color maps (rainbows!), and Carolina will present the state of the art report on multivariate network visualization. Please join us for these talks or just say hi if you see us!
