Victoria Interrante joined the Department of Computer Science & Engineering in 1998 as an assistant professor and was later promoted to a professor in 2015. She was named a McKnight Land Grant Professor in 2001. Before coming to the University, Interrante served as a research assistant at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in 1984 and as a staff scientist at the Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering from 1996-98. In 1999, she received the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award and was inducted into the IEEE VGTC Virtual Reality Academy in 2022.
Interrante's research focuses on applying insights from visual perception and cognition to the development of more effective virtual reality experiences and the more effective communication of complex information through visual imagery. In this work, she has enjoyed collaborating with colleagues in a wide variety of fields, including architectural design, psychology, engineering and medicine.
