Professor Donna Cox is a nationally and internationally recognized pioneer in scientific visualization for public outreach, education, and cinema. Professor Cox and her collaborators have inspired millions with cinematic virtual tours through astrophysics, earth sciences, engineering, and other data domains. Their work is shared through venues such as international digital-dome museum shows, high-definition documentary television programs, and IMAX movies. For example, she was the art director for the IMAX film A Beautiful Planet.

In her presentation, Professor Cox will give us a small window into how visualization enhances communication between science and the arts.
