ABOUT ME

I am Assistant Professor at the department of mathematics and computer science at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). I hold a PhD degree from Leipzig University. My PhD thesis investigates the utility of visualization techniques to support the comparative analysis of digital humanities data.

During the last years, I gained experience in developing information visualization techniques and visual analytics tools within a number of interdisciplinary projects. My research interests relate to information visualization with a focus on text- and geovisualization, on visual analytics and on designing visual interfaces to support research inquiries in application domains such as digital humanities and biology.
