About [ Curriculum Vitae ]

Stefan Bruckner received his master's degree in Computer Science from the Vienna University of Technology (VUT), Austria in 2004 and his Ph.D. in 2008 from the same university. He was awarded the habilitation (venia docendi) in Practical Computer Science in 2012. From 2008 to 2013, he was an assistant professor at the Institute of Computer Graphics and Algorithms at VUT. In 2009/2010, he spent one year as a visiting Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Simon Fraser University, Canada. Since March 2013, he is a full professor in visualization at the University of Bergen. His research interests include biomedical and illustrative visualization, volume rendering, and visual data exploration. In 2011, he was recipient of the Eurographics Young Researcher Award. He is a member of the IEEE Computer Society, ACM SIGGRAPH, and Eurographics.

Research

I investigate methods for gaining insight into complex data to further scientific understanding and discovery, medical diagnosis and treatment, and engineering, as well as techniques for communicating these findings to the public. Building on these foundations, my current interests include the development of novel approaches for the scientific inquiry of large-scale heterogeneous data spaces with a particular focus on the visual analysis of spatial data.

Teaching/Supervision

Seminar in Visualization (INF358)

Fall 2014: This course gives an intorduction to scientific work with a focus on visualization and an overview of state of the art in visualization tools and libraries.

PhD Positions

I am currently looking for a motivated PhD student with an excellent background in visualization, human-computer interaction, and/or computer graphics and very good programming skills. Please see here for more information or contact me at Stefan.Bruckner (at) uib.no.
