Florian Niebling represents the professorship for computer science (media informatics) at the chair of computer science IX (human computer interaction) at the Institute of Computer Science in the winter semester 21/22. He already represented the professorship in summer semester 19 and took over some courses in media informatics in winter semester 19/20.
Florian Niebling studied computer science at the University of Stuttgart, where he received his PhD in 2013 on interactive parallel real-time visualization. His research interests include software engineering of complex systems in parallel and distributed environments, scalable post-processing and visualization of large amounts of data, as well as the interaction with this data in virtual and augmented reality.
Since 2015 he is head of the junior research group UrbanHistory4D (http://urbanhistory4d.org/) which investigates the spatial location of historical photographs and a location-based access to photographs as research data.
