Thomas is a PhD candidate in the Visualization Research Group at the Department of Informatics of the University of Bergen, Norway. He received his bachelor’s degree (2016) and master’s degree (2018), both in (Media Informatics and) Visual Computing, from TU Wien, Austria. He is a member of IEEE (Membership, Young Professionals, Computer Society Membership) and EG (Eurographics).
His research focuses on combining proven and well-established visualization techniques, so-called “Visualization Hybridization”, using spatialization cues. The aim is to maximize the benefits of individual techniques while simultaneously eliminating potential drawbacks. Using implicit visual encodings, such as spatial perception, this results in novel visualization techniques that are superior to their predecessors.
