MArVL, the Monash Adaptive Visualisation Lab, is internationally renowned for its research into information visualisation, accessibility and responsive document layout. Led by Prof. Kim Marriott, this lab consists of academic staff, research programmers, postdoctoral fellows, and several PhD students. The lab is located at Monash University, in Melbourne, Australia. MArVL has a vibrant, collaborative research culture including fortnightly group meetings, informal and formal seminars and social events.
We have strong links with local and international industry. Our technologies underpin Apple’s Cocoa Auto Layout system and Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code Map feature. We have also worked with Vision Australia, jTribe, AusThink, Mozilla, and the W3C.
We are currently looking for PhD students have funding from various sources to provide fee-wavers and stipends for outstanding candidates. The following projects have been proposed, but if you have your own topic this is also possible.
- Visualisation of command and control structure for the emergency services
- Optimal network diagram layout using constraint optimisation
- Software engineering tools for modelling constraint problems.
Also, there are two joint studentships with University of Warwick available to work in the area of visualisation for biological research (apply by May 15th, see item on News page):
