I have been teaching at the University of Texas at San Antonio since the fall of 1975 and have held the rank of Professor since the fall of 1987.
There are a number of ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. --- C.A.R. Hoare
Research interests: My research focuses on visualization, analysis and management of multimedia data sets, particularly those generated from scientific experiments in three major application areas: biological applications (in neuroscience, immunology, and bioinformatics), pattern forming systems and geophysical systems. Recently, I have developed techniques for extracting wave structure from experimental data and am applying these techniques to understand the structure of cortical response. I head a major software development project called Davis to implement the data analysis techniques that I have developed in a practical working system for scientists. I am also working on data streaming algorithms and their distributed implementation as well as real-time visualization of imaging data. I run the Visualization and modeling laboratory (VML) to support these projects.
Collaborators: Since my research focus has always focussed on solving real problems, I have worked with many collaborators over the years. My current active collaborations include:
