Carla Freitas obtained her M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from UFRGS, in 1982 and 1994, respectively. Since 1980, she is a professor at the Institute of Informatics (UFRGS), teaching mainly computer graphics courses at undergraduate and graduate levels. She also gives courses on human-computer interaction and object-oriented programming at undergraduate level, and visualization, for graduate students. In 1996, she was a visiting scholar at International Computer Science Institute and Ernest O. Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Berkeley, CA, working in the development of a collaborative system for supporting physicists' experiments at the ALS. Her current research interests are mainly designing and developing scientific and information visualization techniques for new applications.
