Robert Kooima has spent a decade working to bring scientific data visualization to wide audiences through the application of unique and often large-scale display technologies. These technologies include virtual reality environments, auto-stereoscopic displays, ultra-high-resolution tiled walls, full domes, and multi-touch devices. In each case, the exploration of scientific data is the objective, and interactivity is key. Installations are found in museums, planetaria, and research labs. Today, Robert continues his research and teaches interactive computer graphics and game development at Louisiana State University, where he continues to apply real-time visualization technology to the classroom.
Robert Kooima is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Louisiana State University, and a post-doctoral researcher at the Center for Computation & Technology at LSU. Before joining LSU in 2009, he completed a PhD at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago, studying the application of GPU processing to the real-time analysis of high-resolution planet-scale data. His research interests include interactive 3D graphics and large-scale data rendering.
