Immersive Network Visualisation

Primary supervisor

Tim Dwyer

Research area

Embodied Visualisation

We live and work in a world of complex relationships between data, systems, knowledge, people, documents, biology, software, society, politics, commerce and so on.  We can model these relationships as networks or graphs in the hope of reasoning about them - but the tools that we have for understanding such network structured data (whether algorithmic analytics or visualisation tools) remain crude.  Emerging display and interaction devices such as augmented and virtual reality headsets offer new ways to visualise and interact with data in the world around us rather than on screens.  This project will develop new techniques to visually and analytically explore networks in immersive environments.
