Illustrative Rendering, Visualization, and Human-Computer Interaction > AVIZ > Inria Saclay / Université Paris-Saclay > Inria



I am a senior research scientist (directeur de recherche) with the AVIZ project team at Inria, located on the Saclay / Université Paris-Saclay campus, at the south outskirts of Paris in France.

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 illustrative visualizations on non-traditional hardware 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 2022 At IEEE VIS, we will present the paperBeauVis: A Validated Scale for Measuring the Aesthetic Pleasure of Visual Representations”, which will appear as a journal article in TVCG.
October 2022 At IEEE VIS, we will also present two TVCG journal articles: one on “Molecumentary: Adaptable Narrated Documentaries Using Molecular Visualization” and one on “Do You Believe Your (Social Media) Data? A Personal Story on Location Data Biases, Errors, and Plausibility as well as their Visualization”.
October 2022 Next, at IEEE VIS, together with Robert S. Laramee, Petra Isenberg, and Torsten Möller, I am co-organizing the panelIs This (Panel) Good Enough for IEEE VIS?”, with panelists Cody Dunne, Alexander Lex, Torsten Möller, Alvitta Ottley, and Melanie Tory.
October 2022 Finally, at IEEE VIS, we will also present the posterA Design Space for Linked 2D and 3D Visual Representations”.
September 2022 We contributed to a journal article on “Challenges of Intracellular Visualization using Virtual and Augmented Reality” published in the journal Frontiers in Bioinformatics.
July 2022 Our journal articleUnderstanding Differences between Combinations of 2D and 3D Input and Output Devices for 3D Data Visualization” is published in the International Journal of Human-Computer Studies.
June 2022 🏆 David Kouřil, who I had the pleasure of mentoring for part of his PhD, received the EuroVis PhD Award 2022. Congratulations, David!
June 2022 At EuroVis EG Logo 2022, we presented two papers: “LineageD: An Interactive Visual System for Plant Cell Lineage Assignments based on Correctable Machine Learning” and “Hybrid Touch/Tangible Spatial Selection in Augmented Reality”.
