Mario Costa Sousa
Professor - Computer Science
Head, illustrares -



I am leading the illustrares research group, a multi-disciplinary team of researchers studying fundamental and applied visual computing research, addressing challenges from Science, Engineering, Art/Design, and related domains.

One of our focal points is the ongoing investigation and development of novel expressive visual computing paradigms and software tools, allowing users from multi-disciplines to build, visualize, and analyze models more intuitively and with new insights into exploring their uncertainties.

Our group's fundamental and applied research in visual computing has its foundation in five interrelated Research Themes: (1) Non-Photorealistic Rendering; (2) Sketch-based Interfaces & Modeling, (3) Visualization & Visual Analytics; (4) Modeling & Simulation; and (5) Human-Data & Computer Interaction.
