- In this research area, our focus lies on novel visual encodings and interaction techniques to explore a large amount of abstract data, often in combination with analytical reasoning.
- In this area, we concentrate on algorithms that synthesize images to depict 3D models or scenes, often by simulating or approximating the physics of light.
- This research area bridges the gap between visualization and medicine by providing comprehensible visual means to detect diseased regions or to aid clinical treatment decisions.
- Uses concepts from applied mathematics and computer science to design efficient algorithms for the reconstruction, analysis, manipulation, simulation and transmission of complex 3D models. Example applications are collision detection, reconstruction, compression, occlusion-aware surface handling and improved sampling conditions.
In this area, we focus on user experiences and rendering algorithms for virtual reality environments, including methods to navigate and collaborate in VR, foveated rendering, exploit human perception and simulate visual deficiencies.
- In this research area, we develop rendering methods that are inspired by scientific illustrations, in order to make complex biological information more intuitive to understand and more pleasant to read.
