Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil. Timo Ropinski

Prof. Dr. Ropinski leitet die Forschungsgruppe Visual Computing an der Universität Ulm.  Zuvor hat er als Professor für Interaktive Visualisierung die Forschungsgruppe Visualisierung an der Universität Linköping, Schweden, geleitet. Prof. Dr. Ropinski hat 2004 an der Universität Münster im Bereich Informatik promoviert und sich 2009 ebenfalls dort habilitiert.

Forschungsschwerpunkte

Die Schwerpunkte der Forschungsgruppe Visual Computing liegen in den Bereichen Interaktive Visualisierung und Visual Analytics, wobei neue Erkenntnisse aus vorhandenen Daten abgeleitet werden. Dazu entwickeln und evaluieren wir Methoden für die visuelle Datenanalyse, um große und komplexe Daten begreifbar zu machen. Unsere Ergebnisse sind neue Algorithmen und interaktive Software. Wir wenden unsere Arbeiten unter anderem in der Medizin und den Naturwissenschaften (Astronomie, Biologie und Physik), aber auch in Bereichen wie Kulturerbe und Katastrophenschutz an. Unsere Lösungen werden neben Desktop-Systemen, ebenfalls für mobile Endgeräte, Head-Mounted Displays und unsere Powerwall konzipiert.

Lehre

Im aktuellen/kommenden Semester unterrichte ich die folgenden Kurse:

Über mögliche Bachelor- und Masterarbeiten informieren Sie sich bitte auf unserer gesonderten Themenseite.
