Russell M. Taylor II

Russell M. Taylor II is a Research Associate Professor of Computer Science, Physics and Astronomy, and Applied and Materials Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the co-director of the Center for Computer Integrated Systems for Microscopy and Manipulation.

His research interests include scientific visualization, distributed virtual worlds, haptic display, and interactive 3D computer graphics. All of these come together in his role as the director of the computer science team in the Nanoscale Science Research Group, which is a team of physicists, chemists, gene therapists, biologists, library scientists, perceptual psychologists, and computer scientists working together to develop improved interfaces for scanned-probe and other microscopes. These tools enable scientists to see, touch and manipulate nanometer-scale objects like viruses and carbon nanotubes, either from within the laboratory or across a computer network.
