We leverage visualization to foster deep understanding of chemical systems. By developing innovate visualizations, we provide new perspectives on chemical data, and realize profound chemical insights. This interdisciplinary work between visualization and chemistry is resulting in both visualization and chemical publications. Moreover, this collaborative work is yielding advancements of broad scientific relevance as highlighted by our recently published paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), a top-tier general science journal.
