Michael Sedlmair is the new junior professor for "Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality"
We welcome Michael Sedlmair, who is the new junior professor of the department "Augmented
Reality and Virtual Reality" at VISUS since 1 July 2018.
The newly appointed junior professor is researching in the fields of human-machine and human-data interaction. He and his team are developing new methods for the interactive data visualization, especially those that are strongly based on algorithmic components such as dimension reduction or clustering. To make this possible, he also deals with the basics of perception and cognition, which make it possible to create new, ergonomic interfaces between complex data and human users. Transferring these ideas to the areas of augmented reality and virtual reality is one of the new challenges in Stuttgart.
Michael Sedlmair studied media informatics at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and received his doctorate in computer science in October 2010 (dissertation: Visual Analysis of In-Car-Communication Networks). Afterwards he worked at the University of British Columbia as PostDoc, at the University of Vienna as Assistant Professor and most recently as Associate Professor for Computer Science at Jacobs University Bremen.
We wish him a successful start!
