Our group aims at developing and deploying graph drawing algorithms for the purpose of information visualization. We have been working here to devise algorithms that combine efficiency with aesthetics in order to ease insight into complex combinatorial structures and large masses of data. Our primary focus in the field of information visualization is to give efficient algorithms for producing interactive and visual representations of abstract data. The ability of the human mind to rapidly process visual input has made information visualization an inevitable tool of our age, allowing us to turn data into knowledge and insight. Hence, our research group aims at finding algorithmic solutions for creating visualizations of data arising from practical application domains.
