2017-2021 I am a collaborator (and a co-advisor to the future PhD student, and also eventually a post-doc) in a newly funded SNF project in collaboration with UZH's Computer Science department (IFI): we were looking to fill the PhD student position, see the ad here (position filled!).
2016-2017 I am the principal investigator of a project titled "Visual complexity", funded by Google's faculty research award program. With Dr. Alzbeta Brychtova (post-doc) and MSc candidate Dario Oertle, we benchmark quantiative measure of complexity and compare these to
human response to the visually complex displays.
2009-2017 I have been the principal investigator of an SNF (Swiss National Science Foundation) funded project called "GeoF". GeoF is short for a concept we named "Geofoveation", extending the foveation research into geographic information domain for human visual system inspired level of detail management of (often very large) graphic datasets. We develop concepts and implementations under this umbrella here in GIVA with the PhD Candidate Kenan Bektas.
