Human Data Interaction Lab
The Human Data Interaction Lab (HDIL) at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences investigates new ways to support different user groups at the intersection of human-centered design and data-driven analysis. Major research areas are aesthetic and casual visualization, interaction design and usability, and data literacy and data visualization activities.
The Human Data Interaction Lab is headed by Till Nagel, professor of Visual Analytics.
At the HDIL, people from different backgrounds ranging from computer science, to communication design to medical informatics work together on interactive visualizations of urban and mobility data, visual analytics in the medical field, and the democratization of visualization tools and workshops.
The HDIL is partner of the Mannheim Institute for Human Centered Innovation (MIX).
