I hold a Digiteo Chair of Excellence position for the topic »Advanced Visual Exploration with Interactive Illustrative Rendering«, in collaboration with VENISE–LIMSI–CNRS and AVIZ–INRIA at Saclay (south of Paris, France). I will soon start a position as Research Director with the AVIZ–INRIA lab.
I am member of the Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics research group within the Johann Bernoulli Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. Since September 2010,
My research focuses on interactive scientific visualization and illustrative rendering, using methods from computer graphics, non-photorealistic rendering (NPR), and human-computer interaction. I am specifically interested in (2D and, in particular, 3D) interaction techniques for work with illustrative visualizations on large, touch-sensitive displays as well as illustrative visualization that is inspired by traditional illustration.
