Chuck Hansen Professor

Charles (Chuck) Hansen is a Professor of Computer Science and an Associate Director of the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at the University of Utah. He received a B.S. in computer science from Memphis State University in 1981 and a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Utah in 1987. He was a visiting scientist at INRIA-Rhone Alpes in the GRAVIR group in 2004-2005. From 1997 to 1999, he was a research associate professor in Computer Science at Utah. From 1989 to 1997, he was a Technical Staff Member in the Advanced Computing Laboratory (ACL) located at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he formed and directed the visualization efforts in the ACL. He was a Bourse de Chateaubriand PostDoc Fellow at INRIA, Rocquencourt France, in 1987 and 1988. Chuck Hansen has published over 100 peer reviewed journal and conference papers and has been a co-author on three papers recognized with “Best Paper Awards’’ at the IEEE Visualization Conference (1998, 2001, 2002). He was coauthor on the Best Paper at IEEE Pacific Visualization 2010. He was awarded the IEEE Technical Committee on Visualization and Graphics “Technical Achievement Award” in 2005 in recognition of seminal work on tools for understanding largescale scientific data sets. He has been Associate Editor in Chief of IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics.  His research has made contributions to the fields of scientific visualization, computer graphics, parallel computation and computer vision.
