Research topics

Our research in the area of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) focuses on:

  1. Immersive analytics
  2. Novel interaction methods for VR/AR.

In terms of immersive analytics, we focus on the question as to when VR/AR is really needed for analyzing and visualizing data.

For interaction, we specifically explore novel ways of how VR/AR might offer more natural ways to interact with data.

There is a close cooperation with the working groups of the Visualization Research Center (VISUS) and the other departments of VIS.
