 Picture of Dan Keefe The University of Minnesota has awarded Assistant Professor Dan Keefe the McKnight Land-Grant Professorship. Keefe's research integrates 3D computer graphics, human-computer interfaces, and real-world (often data-intensive) applications. His goal is to enable scientific discovery, creative workflows and new applications of computer science — creating new opportunities for humans and computers to collaborate in virtual spaces used for engineering, medicine, art and more.

The goal of the McKnight program is to advance the careers of our most promising junior faculty at a critical point in their professional lives. Recipients are honored with the title McKnight Land-Grant Professor, a special award they will hold for two years. The award consists of a research grant in each of two years and a research leave in the second year.
