Bruce Land
Project Leader of Visualization, Theory Center
Senior Research Associate, CS Department
PhD Cornell University, 1976

As a staff member in the Cornell Theory Center, my function is to develop and use computer graphical methods to understand large, often multidimensional, scientific data sets. In order to enhance understanding of the data sets, we develop software tools and paradigms to show novel relationships between data in a visual format. Recently we have been developing software to interactively explore chemical systems and geographic information databases.

I have taught CS417, Computer Graphics, for three years with an emphasis on the mathematical methods used to produce computer graphics. The associated lab course, CS418, uses a block-diagram, data-flow language to illustrate course concepts. These courses are described elsewhere on the CS department web server.
