TOBIAS MARTIN

Research Engineer

martin 'at' cs.utah.edu

I am a research engineer at VirtaMed. Before, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Computer Graphics Laboratory working with Prof. Markus Gross at ETH Zurich. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science under Prof. Elaine Cohen in the Geometric Design and Computation group at the University of Utah. I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science (Diplom-Informatiker FH) from the University of Applied Sciences Furtwangen in Germany. Before arriving in Utah I studied at the National University of Singapore. I had stints at EADS, Bayer, G-Element, Adobe Systems, and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. My research interests include geometric modeling, geometric processing, volumetric parameterization, visualization, and rendering. I am proficient with finite element analysis methods, PDEs, differential geometry, numerical methods, and GPU computation.
