Prof. Kwan-Liu Ma is a professor of computer science and the chair of the Graduate Group in Computer Science (GGCS) at the University of California-Davis, where he directs VIDI Labs and UC Davis Center of Excellence for Visualization. His research spans the fields of visualization, computer graphics, high-performance computing, and user interface design. Prof. Ma received his PhD in computer science from the University of Utah (1993). During 1993-1999, he was with ICASE/NASA Langley Research Center as a research scientist. He joined UC Davis in 1999. Prof. Ma is presently leading a team of over 25 researchers pursuing research in scientific visualization, information visualization, visual analytics, visualization for storytelling, visualization interface design, and immersive visualization. For his significant research accomplishments, Prof. Ma received the NSF Presidential Early-Career Research Award (PECASE) in 2000, was elected an IEEE Fellow in 2012, and received the 2013 IEEE VGTC Visualization Technical Achievement Award. Professor Ma actively serves the research community by playing leading roles in several professional activities including VizSec, Ultravis, EGPGV, IEEE VIS, IEEE PacificVis, and IEEE LDAV. He has served as a papers co-chair for SciVis, InfoVis, EuroVis, PacificVis, and Graph Drawing.
