We are the VIA Lab (Visualization and Intelligence Augmentation) at UC Davis. Chasing “big data, intelligent algorithms, and intuitive interfaces”, we build visualization-empowered human-AI teaming systems to augment human intelligence, Our goal is to make the data-to-decision process not only accurate and efficient, but also accessible, understandable, and acceptable to users.


We are looking to recruit two more fully-funded PhD students who share our passion for advancing the fields of Visualization, Human-Centered AI, and Data Science. Please read the Prospective page for hiring details.

About Curiosity:

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day."
— Albert Einstein
