Research Mentors work with collaborators (faculties) and REU students and provide guidance on the visualization process for visualizing data. Research Mentors work with collaborators to establish milestones for each project. Milestones are revisited and reassessed during the course of the summer program to ensure the visualization needs of projects are being met.
