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
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.
