Donna Cox is a member of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) leadership team, a pioneer in scientific visualization for public outreach and education, and the originator of the collaborative model of Renaissance Teams and the concept of visaphors (digital metaphors of computational science.) Through public outreach projects, Cox and her collaborators have inspired millions with cinematic virtual tours through astrophysics, earth sciences, engineering, and other data domains. Their work is shared through venues such as international digital-dome museum shows, high definition documentary television programs, and IMAX movies. The Chicago Museum of Science and Industry selected Cox as one of the40 “modern-day Leonardos” in their “Leonardo da Vinci: Man, Inventor, Genius” exhibit for her acumen in both science and art.
