» The Ideation lab

The Ideation lab supports undergraduate and faculty research by providing help with creative visualization and presentation. This help can include creative writing, video, photography, data visualization, and design. Creative Research fellows staff the lab and can help with the presentation of complex communication problems. 

Students who are interested in getting involved in a research project with faculty or who would like to do their own independent research are encouraged to contact Professor Chimenti about current opportunities.

The Ideation Lab also encourages and facilitates interdisciplinary research among students and faculty.

We also serve as a resource for the community and can provide consulting services.


The Ideation Lab is in the midst of working with Chapman's own Town & Gown on a series of commercials celebrating their 45 years of making a difference at Chapman University.
