Innovations in Visualization

Kyle Hall

Kyle Hall is a PhD candidate in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale and Dr. Peter Kusalik. His research interests lie at the intersection of physical chemistry, simulations, and visualization. By combining these interests in novel ways, he advances both chemistry and visualization research. His current computer science research themes include visualizations of chemical simulations, the role of emphasis in visualization, and graphs. His PhD research has been funded by the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship Program, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Alberta Innovates - Technology Futures (AITF), the Ireland Canada University Foundation, and the Izaak Walton Killam Pre-Doctoral Scholarship Program. Kyle strongly believes that scientific cooperation is a powerful strategy to realize ambitious research goals. Consequently, he has collaborated with researchers in China, France, Ireland, Scotland and the United States during his PhD.
