Welcome

 

I am a senior research scientist (directeur de recherche) with Inria at its Saclay/Université Paris-Saclay campus, at the southern outskirts of Paris.

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 questions in the fields of 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 visualizations on non-traditional hardware (large surfaces, AR/VR, hybrid settings) as well as illustrative visualization that is inspired by traditional illustration, such as questions on how to use and control abstraction in visualization.

p text-align=justify color=red I am currently looking for a PhD student with a solid background in computer graphics and/or visualization who is interested in working with me on the topic of Support of the Interactive Visual Exploration and Classification of Temporal Development in 3D Datasets using the Example of Cell Division Data. Please contact me by e-mail if you are interested or directly apply at the mentioned application site.

News and Upcoming Events

October 2024 At IEEE VIS, we will present four papers: one on “PREVis: Perceived Readability Evaluation for Visualizations”, one on “DiffFit: Visually-Guided Differentiable Fitting of Molecule Structures to a Cryo-EM Map”, one on “The Language of Infographics: Toward Understanding Conceptual Metaphor Use in Scientific Storytelling”, and one on “SpatialTouch: Exploring Spatial Data Visualizations in Cross-reality”. They all will also be published in the journal IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics.
October 2024 At IEEE VIS, we will also present two journal papers: one on “V-Mail: 3D-Enabled Correspondence about Spatial Data on (Almost) All Your Devices” and another one on “Visualizing and Comparing Machine Learning Predictions to Improve Human-AI Teaming on the Example of Cell Lineage” that are published in the journal IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics.
October 2024 Finally, at IEEE VIS, my colleagues and I will also present a poster on “In Space, No One (but AI) Can Hear You Scream”.
September 2024 I will be giving an invited talk at VCBM 2024 in Magdeburg on the “Visualization of Species Distributions based on Social Media Data and a Couple of Surprises and Insights”.
