Immersive virtual reality, augmented reality, real-time rendering of large data sets, volume rendering, 3D user interfaces.

Dr. Schulze's research focus is on making interactive 3D visualization systems easier to use. This includes both the visual display of the data, and input paradigms. Dr. Schulze uses high-end clustered graphics systems, such as virtual reality CAVEs to immerse the user in the data, and he uses 3D tracked input devices and more recently smart phones and tablets to interact with the virtual reality system. Dr. Schulze is the director of the Immersive Visualization Laboratory (IVL) at UC San Diego’s Qualcomm Institute, the San Diego division of Calit2. In the CSE Department, Dr. Schulze teaches CSE 167 (Introduction to Computer Graphics) and CSE 165 (3D User Interfaces) and runs independent study projects in his laboratory at the Qualcomm Institute.
