Hi! I am Renata and I am Assistant Professor in Medical Visualization and Visual Analytics at the Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics Research Group of the Bernoulli Institute at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. Before, I was a Post-Doc at the Visualization Group of Eduard Gröller, at TU Wien, Austria. I received my Ph.D. in Medical Visualization from Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, in 2017. The topic of my dissertation was “Visual Analytics for Digital Radiotherapy: Towards a Comprehensible Pipeline”, and for the results of my work, I obtained the Best PhD Award 2018 of the EuroVis Awards Programme. Additionally, I was awarded the Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine (1st Place) at Eurographics 2017.
My research focus is on the interface between Visual Analytics, Image Processing, and Machine Learning, with a strong focus on medical applications—in particular, radiotherapy. My specific domains of expertise are Comparative Visual Analytics and Uncertainty Visualization. Recently, I got enthusiastic about Data Physicalization, and its application to Anatomical Edutainment.
