Ruben > Hi, I’m Ruben! I recently started as a PhD candidate at the Computer Graphics and Visualization group. My interests include computer graphics, machine learning, storytelling (movies, experiences, books, etc.) and art. After graduating Cum Laude with a thesis on geometric deep learning, I will now work on applications of computer graphics and machine learning for painting analysis under supervision of Prof. Dr. Elmar Eisemann and Prof. Dr. Joris Dik.

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

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