graph algorithms (in particular for graph drawing and network visualization), computational geometry (in particular algorithms for cartography and geovisualization), algorithm engineering and combinatorial optimization
Martin Nöllenburg studied Computer Science at Karlsruhe University (Germany) and McGill University (Canada). He received his diploma with distinction in 2005. He continued as a PhD student and research assistant in the Institute of Theoretical Informatics at Karlsruhe University and received his doctoral degree in 2009 (summa cum laude). Martin was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California, Irvine in 2010, funded by a fellowship of the German Research Foundation (DFG). Between 2010 and 2015, Martin was head of the Young Investigator Group “Algorithms for Geovisualization” at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where he also did his habilitation in 2015. In 2015, he joined TU Wien as a tenure-track assistant professor for Graph and Geometric Algorithms as a member of the Algorithms and Complexity group. Since 2017 he is a tenured associate professor at TU Wien.
