Research

My academic research is focused on efficient rendering of large data sets using a hierarchical voxel structure, effectively putting the discretisation we’re so used to in the 2D space to a 3D perspective. This involves efficient streaming and filtering of large data sets.

Master Thesis

In 2009-2010, I did my Master’s thesis. My promotor was Prof. Dr. Ir. Ph. Dutré of the Computer Graphics group at the Computer Sciences department of the Catholic University of Leuven. My day-to-day progress was monitored by Dr. B. J. Brown and Ir. R. Schoukens.

Contour line extraction and rendering for interactive 3D applications focuses on different methods (Object Space and Image Space) to compute and render contour lines and suggestive contour lines, starting from a regular 3D mesh. Rendering line drawings of complex models at interactive rates was the main goal.
