The Design, Visualization, & Cognition (DVC) Lab is the research lab of Dr. Paul Parsons in the Polytechnic Institute at Purdue University. The DVC Lab conducts research in the area of human-computer interaction (HCI), with an emphasis on cognitive aspects of designing and using of visualization interfaces.

The DVC Lab collaborates with other researchers in the Polytechnic Institute, especially Dr. Colin GrayDr. Austin Toombs, Dr. Rua Williams, and Prof. Nancy Rasche, across topics related to user experience, design, and education. We also collaborate with members of the Visualization Research Group at Purdue University, members of the Resilient Extra Terrestrial Habitats Institute (RETHi) at Purdue and elsewhere, and members of the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI).

Research in the DVC Lab is funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and Purdue University.
