Alexandru Telea received his PhD (2000) in Computer Science from the Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, in the area of visualization system design. Until 2007, he was assistant professor in visualization and computer graphics at the same university. Since 2007, he is professor of multiscale visual analytics at the Faculty of Science and Engineering, University of Groningen, the Netherlands. His interests include 3D multiscale shape processing, information visualization (with a focus on relational and multidimensional data), software visualization, and visual analytics. He has published over 200 papers in the above fields. He is the author of the textbook “Data Visualization – Principles and Practice” (CRC Press, 2nd edition, 2014) and the co-creator of CUBu, the world’s fastest bundling algorithm for general graphs.
