Bernie Jenny
Associate Professor of Immersive Visualisation
Faculty of Information Technology
Monash University, Melbourne, Australia

I love maps, and my research focuses on the visualisation of geospatial data. My research combines cartography, computer graphics, immersive visualisation, and human-computer interaction. I currently focus on (1) virtual reality and augmented reality applied to geospatial data, (2) outdoor augmented reality, storytelling and immersive analytics with geospatial data, (3) adaptive composite map projections for digital maps and virtual reality, (4) the representation of terrain in 2D and 3D, and (5) algorithms and methods for the design of thematic maps, such as flow maps and dot maps.

I’m looking for students who want to create new types of visualisations by combining immersive visualisation, computer graphics, augmented and virtual reality, cartography, geovisualisation, and geographic information science. If you are interested in working with me, please explore my past research and contact me with a project proposal. Students of other universities are welcome to apply for internships. You will collaborate with members of the Monash sensiLab and the MArVL Monash Adaptive Visualisation Lab. Monash University is among the top-ranked universities worldwide.
