Publications

Research conducted in the DIVA lab is targeted to biomedical and computational journals, conferences, and workshops.

Biomedical publications focus on the results of visualization and analysis of biomedical data.

Computational publications focus on the development and evaluation of algorithms and interfaces based on human-computer interaction principles.

Beyond publications, our driving goal is to improve health in whatever form it takes.
