About Me

My expertise lies in identifying and developing visual and analytical approaches, which facilitate the understanding of structured data with an emphasis on graph and hypergraph structures. In my current position at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research, I am expanding my visualization research to other structural aspects of data, such as heterogeneous, multiscale, and multilevel data. I frequently apply my research in the domains of biomedicine, climatology, and recently also in the domain of manufacturing and automation, which have a high demand for Visual Analytics solutions for structured data. In my free time, I'm an avid hiker and climber, and like to enjoy the outdoors.
