With the advent of the Internet, the World Wide Web, portable computers, mobile communication devices, and greater computing power in general, the amount of data available to people and organizations has grown astronomically in recent years. While one would hope that access to this data would foster improved understanding, insight, and decision-making, too often it leads to confusion, bewilderment, and a sense of a missed opportunity instead. Our research group develops ways to help people and organizations understand data via innovative interfaces and applications in the areas of information visualization, visual analytics, and peripheral awareness. We ultimately want to help people solve problems and understand the world better.
Our research is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation (IIS-0915788 and CCF-0808863) and from the Dept. of Homeland Security's Center of Excellence in Command, Control and Interoperability (VACCINE) and a donation from TravelPort Corp. We have received past support from NSF (IIS-0414667), the Dept. of Homeland Security's NVAC Program, Steelcase Corporation, NCR Corporation, Microsoft Corporation, and Haptek Corporation.
