Professor of Computer Science – Head of Visual Computing Group
Filip Sadlo‘s research interests include scientific visualization, visual analytics, and computational photography, with a focus on large and complex data and proximity to physics and simulation. In scientific visualization, he conducts research on feature-based visualization of scalar-, vector-, and tensor fields, topological data analysis, and volume rendering. His application domains include astrophysics, meteorology, health, and medicine. Filip Sadlo has conducted many international and interdisciplinary research projects and is extending his activities in data science.
Refined extraction of vortex core lines in fluid flow
Network within RTG Big Data Research
- Flow visualization: e.g., for blood flow, aneurisms, advection-diffusion of oxygen and nutrients, development of tissue, transport of inertial particles in the respiratory system
- Volume rendering: e.g., for revealing structure in computed tomography scans
- Visual analytics: e.g., for revealing structure in large complex data, including multi-field multi-variate and multi-physics data, integrating simulated data and measurements
- Tensor field visualization: e.g., for understanding the fiber structure in diffusion tensor imaging of the brain, stresses in the skeleton
