Director of Visualization Center C
Head of the division for Media and Information Technology
BackgroundProfessor Anders Ynnerman received a Ph.D. 1992 in physics from Gothenburg University. During the early 90s he was doing research at Oxford University, UK, and Vanderbilt University, USA. In 1996 he started the Swedish National Graduate School in Scientific Computing, which he directed until 1999. From 1997 to 2002 he directed the Swedish National Supercomputer Centre and from 2002 to 2006 he directed the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC).
Since 1999 he is holding a chair in scientific visualization at Linköping University and he is the director of the Norrköping Visualization Center - C, which currently constitutes one of the main focal points for research and education in computer graphics and visualization in the Nordic region. The center also hosts a public arena with large scale visualization facilities. He is also one of the co-founders of the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) and he is serving as the chair of the scientific council for CMIV.
