Ruben > I will be a postdoc at the Interactive Geometry Lab at ETH Zürich, starting September 2024. In my research I seek to connect computer graphics- and geometry processing techniques to applications in machine learning and painting analysis. I was a PhD student at the Computer Graphics and Visualization group at the University of Technology Delft from November 2019 until May 2024, defending on October 15th, 2024. I was advised by Dr. Klaus Hildebrandt and 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.
