I hold a tenured appointment as adjunct professor in Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics at the Institute of Mathematics and Computing Science (IWI), University of Groningen, the Netherlands. I also hold a temporary affiliation at the Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands.
My interests cover the following:
scientific visualization (flow visualization, GPU-based acceleration techniques)
information visualization (software visualization, InfoVis systems design)
multiscale visualisation (hierarchical data representations and visual metaphors)
interactive systems design
application builders, dataflow environments)

Data Visualization: Principles and Practice (510 pages)
This book provides an introduction to data
visualization from a practical perspective. The book
The book was published by A. K. Peters Ltd in 2007.
Here is a selection of my ongoing projects. Check out also the tool downloads in the following sections
The Visual Code Navigator: A full-fledged environment for visualizing and navigating software projects of millions of lines of code and hundreds of versions.
3D Skeletonization: A novel approach to robustly extract and intuitively simplify skeleton surfaces of large, complex 3D voxelized objects.
AreaView: A full-fledged viewer for UML diagrams, augmented with metrics, annotations, smart navigation, and areas of interest.
MemoView: An interactive tool to visualize the evolution of log data such as profiling memory allocations and CVS repository information.
SoftVision: An interactive environment for
constructing software architecture and similar graph-based visualizations.
Here are the main courses I deliver or have delivered:
Data Visualization (Masterís level)
Advanced computer graphics (Bachelor level)
Software maintenance and evolution (Masterís level)

PhD students and researchers:
My PhD research was on the design and implementation of VISSION, an interactive application building environment for VIsualisation and SImulation with Object-oriented Networks. VISSION offers object-oriented tools for scientific visualization and (real-time) interaction with running simulations, is easily extendable with application-specific modules, and constructs visual programming and graphics user interfaces automatically for object-oriented application code.
