My research group addresses visual data analysis which includes mathematical data analysis, scientific visualization, information visualization and visual analytics. Our applications include fluid dynamics, material sciences, environmental sciences, bioinformatics, digital humanities, and neuroscience.
Available PhD projects
Current research topics in visualization for neurosciences are effective multimodal visualizations, automatic and semi-automatic bundling of fiber tracts from dMRI measurements, and comparative visualization. We develop the open source visualization software OpenWalnut (www.openwalnut.org) which is the basis for our algorithmic research. Our research is carried out in close cooperation with neuroscience and clinical research groups at University Clinic Leipzig, MPI Cognitive and Brain Sciences (Leipzig) and MPI for Metabolism Research (Cologne).
