  • Prof. Dr. Alexander Wiebel

    Alexander Wiebel is professor of visual computing at Hochschule Worms University of Applied Sciences in Germany. He received his Dipl.-Inf. (MS in computer science) degree from the University of Kaiserslautern in 2004 and his Ph.D. degree from Universität Leipzig in 2008. For both degrees he performed research in the context of flow visualization. As a postdoctoral researcher at Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, and later at Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB), he conducted research in interactive visualization of 3D MRI data with a focus on intuitive selection of structures in direct volume renderings. During this time, Alexander Wiebel lectured at Universität Leipzig and Freie Universität Berlin. Between 2013 and 2015 he was a professor at Hochschule Coburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany. His research received a nomination for the best paper award and an honorable mention at IEEE Visualization in 2007 and 2010 respectively.
