Welcome to the Graphics Lab
The Computer Graphics Laboratory in the Computer Science and Engineering Department of the University of Colorado Denver is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to the development of interactive computer graphics, physical simulation, and scientific visualization techniques under the leadership of Dr. Min Choi. Research conducted through the lab explores a diverse set of topics including physical modeling, animation, and dynamic interaction with virtual environments for medical and bioinformatics applications. Additional focused research topics include physical material property analysis (materials science), deformable object simulation, 3D object reconstruction, mobile graphics solutions, GPGPU, scientific visualization, motion capture, and game design. Additional important information about the topics examined by this lab can be found by exploring our various research pages.

PhD candidate Breawn Schoun has been awarded the GAANN fellowship through the Department of Education for an interdisciplinary doctorate within Big Data Science and Engineering in coordination with Dr. Farnoush and the UCD Big Data Lab. The primary research focus of this award is to explore immersive interaction in partially and fully virtual environments, using data-driven approaches to generate realistic virtual environments.


Comcast Media and Technology Center

In collaboration with the UCD Graphics Laboratory, co-directors Dr. Choi and Dr. Brian DeLevie have partnered with Comcast to open the Comcast Media and Technology Center, a $5 million, 1900 square-foot research, art, and technology center within the Tivoli Student Union. Based on cooperation between the College of Arts & media and the College of Engineering and Applied science, this research-based center for innovation provides a new opportunity to integrate art and science to develop new technologies in animation, robotics, physical simulation, augmented/virtual reality, and game design.
