The Cluster of Excellence IntCDC is excited to welcome Junior Research Group Lead Dr. Kuno Kurzhals
We warmly welcome the first of our three Junior Research Group Leaders, Dr. Kuno Kurzhals, who joined IntCDC in April. He studied computer science at the University of Stuttgart and after receiving his diploma, he did his Ph.D. at the Institute for Visualization Research Center at the University of Stuttgart (VISUS). The title of his dissertation was “Visual Analytics of Eye-Tracking and Video Data”, it received the best dissertation award from the Informatik Forum Stuttgart, as well as an honorable mention dissertation award from the IEEE VGTC VPG (Visualization Pioneers Group). In 2019, he started working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Cartography and Geoinformation, ETH Zurich.
His research focuses on visual analytics techniques for spatio-temporal data and evaluation methodology involving eye tracking technology. By combining interactive visualization with techniques from computer vision and machine learning, he provides researchers and data scientists new ways to look at their data, explore it, and understand results from automatic processing steps. He will support the research in the cluster with new techniques for visualization-supported data analysis. Further, he will incorporate eye tracking technology in design and evaluation processes within the IntCDC, for instance, to provide insights into how people perceive architecture, support collaborative work, and develop new techniques for gaze-based interaction.
Welcome to IntCDC!
