About

Ruben > Hi, I’m Ruben! I am a second-year PhD student at the Computer Graphics and Visualization group at the University of Technology Delft. My interests include geometry processing, computer graphics, and storytelling. I am working on applications of computer graphics for painting analysis. I’m also continuing research that I started in my Master on geometric deep learning, advised by Dr. Klaus Hildebrandt. I’m supervised by Prof. Dr. Elmar Eisemann and Prof. Dr. Joris Dik.

I have gathered experience as a graphic designer and filmmaker during my undergraduate years. You can find some examples of that work on this website. Outside of academia, I enjoy making music, reading and discussing books, watching movies, biking, and playing soccer.

Sidebar painting: Ottmar Elliger, ‘Stilleven met bloemen en vruchten’ (1671), from the Rijksmuseum collection.
