Daniel Cornel
short CV:
I received a BSc degree in Media Informatics from the Vienna University of Technology in 2011 and continued my studies with the Master program Visual Computing, which I completed in 2014 with a Master's thesis on stochastic sampling. During my studies, I specialized in real-time rendering with a focus on engine development for video games. I joined the Integrated Simulations group of the VRVis Research Center for Virtual Reality and Visualization in 2014 and am the lead rendering engine developer for Visdom. I completed my PhD on the topic of "Interactive Visualization of Simulation Data for Geospatial Decision Support" in 2020.
