Bruce R. Land
Project leader of Visualization,
Cornell Theory Center
Senior Research Associate, Computer Science
Ph.D. 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 effectively use simulated environments to interactively explore chemical systems and other 3D systems.

I have taught CS417, Computer Graphics, for five years. I intend to teach 417/418 again with a greater emphasis on scientific visualization. I participate in various community outreach projects, including "Kids on Campus" and talks at junior high and high school level on the importance of science, computing, and math.
