Ph.D. Student, Computer Science and Engineering
John Mangan first collaborated with the visual labs of Calit2 when he attended UC San Diego as an undergraduate. Upon graduation, he transitioned from the immersive visualization lab to Professor Falko Kuester's visual analytics group. He worked as staff for a year, assisting with environment maintenance and installation, as well as creating a new software framework which allowed researchers and presenters to view and manipulate numerous types of media/data content simultaneously within the Calit2 tile display environments. Now attending UC San Diego in pursuit of a Ph.D. in Software Engineering, John has transitioned to research focusing on large scale software that is deployable both within and external to the academic setting.
