Jian Chen

Associate Professor

My research centers around interdisciplinary knowledge discovery science of interactive visual computing. I direct the OSU Interactive Visual Computing Lab. I design and study new visualization techniques and interactive metaphors to augment scientists' ability to explore vast amount of data on desktop or immersive virtual environments. Our current methods combine cognitive and perceptual experiments and mathematical modeling. The lab website provides more detail on some current research projects and my team. See the google scholar page for my publications. My team has successfully designed both spatial and non-spatial data visualizations for physicists, biologists, and neurologists.
