Sebastian Maisch, Dipl. Inform.

Sebastian Maisch joined the VISCOM group in April 2015.

Sebastian holds a Diploma in Computer Science (2015) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). He wrote his Diploma thesis at the KIT's Computer Graphics Group. The title of the thesis was: Discrete Ordinate Methods with WENO Interpolation.

Research Interests

  • Global Illumination
  • Participating Media
  • Skin Rendering

Teaching

Lectures, Projects and Seminars

Open Topics for Theses

I like to supervise theses with topics in the fields of Real-Time Rendering, Global Illumination or Physically Based Rendering, but also from other fields in Computer Graphics.

If you are interested in writing a thesis, please send me an email or drop by my office.

Projects

VISCOM Lab

The lab of the VISCOM group contains a 2.5m x 4m sized projection wall. We use 12 x 2 FullHD projectors to show interactive images using passive stereo. The wall contains a touch interface for input.
