Bio:

Fabian Beck is an assistant professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany and leads the research group for visualization. His research focuses on methods for visualizing and comparing large and dynamic graphs and hierarchies, often in the context of software systems, their evolution, and execution behavior. He also investigates visual analytics systems and the integration of visualizations into text documents. He received the Dr. rer. nat. (PhD) degree in computer science from the University of Trier, Germany in 2013. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Stuttgart Visualization Research Center (VISUS) until 2016. In 2018, he was awarded with the EuroVis Young Researcher Award and became Junior Fellow of EUROGRAPHICS.
