Research profile

Prof.Dr. Anna Vilanova is full professor in visual analytics since October 2019, at the department of Mathematics and Computer Science, at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). She is also  associated to the Electrical Engineering department within the Signal Processing Systems at TU/e. Previously she was associate professor for 6 years at the Computer Graphics & Visualization Group at EEMCS at the University of Deft, the Netherlands. From 2002 to August 2013, she was Assistant Professor at the Biomedical Image Analysis group of the Biomedical Engineering Department at TU/e. She is leading a research group in the subject of visual analytics and multivalued image analysis and visualization, focusing on Visual Analytics for high dimensional data. She focuses on Biomedical applications, Diffusion Weighted Imaging and 4D Flow. Her research interests include visual analytics, medical visualization, volume visualization, multivalued visualization, and medical image analysis. In 2005, she was awarded a NWO-Veni personal grant with title “Visualization of global tensor information for diffusion tensor imaging”. In 2013 she got a NWO-Aspasia. She is member of the international program committee of several conferences (e.g., IEEE Visualization and EG- IEEE VGTC-EuroVis). She has been chair and editor of relevant conferences and journals in her field of research (e.g., EuroVis 2008, Computer & Graphics, Computer Graphics Forum). She was member of the steering committee of IEEE VGTC EuroVis since 2014 -2018. She is elected member of the EUROGRAPHICS executive committee since 2015 and vice president of EUROGRAPHICS since 2019.
