Research interests

I love maps, and my research focuses on the visualisation of geospatial data. I combine cartography, computer graphics, immersive visualisation, and human-computer interaction. My research activities currently focus on

  1. virtual reality and augmented reality applied to geospatial data,
  2. outdoor augmented reality, storytelling and immersive analytics with geospatial data,
  3. adaptive composite map projections for digital maps and virtual reality,
  4. the representation of terrain in 2D and 3D, and
  5. algorithms and methods for the design of thematic maps, such as flow maps and dot maps.

Supervision interests

I am looking for students who want to create new types of visualisations by combining immersive visualisation, computer graphics, augmented and virtual reality, cartography, geovisualisation, and geographic information science.
