"Visualzation is a Catalyst for Communication,
- a Conduit for Collaboration,
- a Pathway to STEM, and
- a Mechanism for Broadening Participation
- and Inclusion."
~ Vetria L. Byrd, PhD
We aim to do really good rigorous science and publish that work in respected, scholarly places. We are excited about about the interdisciplinary topics we work on that include: uncertainty visualization (it's role and impact on reasoning in decision-making), big data, and high performance visualization. It is important that lab members learn, advance their careers and contribute to the scientific community.VISION
It is the vision of the Byrd Visualization Laboratory, that each member develops and refine transferrable, marketable skills that serve as the foundation for successful careers in fields where persons knowledgeable in data visualization are in demand -- the global workforce, industry, research and academia.GOALS
The goals of the Byrd Visualization Laboratory are: (1) to bridge science, technology and the arts through visualization, (2) to serve as a resource for expertise that will enable visualization of what's expected and discover the unexpected in large, complex data, and (3) present visualizations of large data sets in non-overwhelming ways.
Knowledge of how to utilize visualization as a tool for insight in
data-rich environments leads to flexibility in scholarship and employment.
