Ruben > Hi, I’m Ruben! I recently started as a PhD candidate at the Computer Graphics and Visualization group at the University of Technology Delft. 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.
