Curriculum Vitae: CV

I am a Postdoc researcher with Prof. Dr. Daniel Weiskopf at the Visualization Research Center, University of Stuttgart (VISUS). I earned my Ph.D. at the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute (SCI), University of Utah under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Charles Hansen in 2014. My research interests include scientific and information visualization, and visual analytics with a focus of multivariate datasets.
