If so, please let us know.
We are looking for a student(s) interested in undertaking
leading research work in the field of data visualization.
Data visualization, a vibrant, exciting and rapidly expanding
sub-field of computer science, is concerned with the use of
computers and their graphics capabilities in order to generate
meaningful imagery that provides insight into data from various
