Cur­riculum Vitae

My research and teaching interests are in visualization, computer graphics, and image processing.. Before joining the University of Paderborn in 1993 I was a research assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder (USA). My previous professional life was spent with positions at the Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy at the University of Colorado (1987-1990), at Vexcel Corporation in Boulder (1985-1987), and the institute for image processing and computer graphics at the research center Joanneum (1982-1985) in Graz, Austria. I graduated from the Technical University Graz, Austria, with a Master's Degree ("Diplomingenieur") in 1981, and with a PhD in 1985.
