Dr. Gunther H. WeberResearch Scientist/Engineer, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory & Adjunct Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of California, Davis
Gunther H. Weber is a Research Scientist in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)'s Computational Research Division and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Computer Science at UC Davis. His research interests include computer graphics, scientific visualization, data analysis, topological data analysis methods, parallelization of visualization algorithms, hierarchical data representation methods, and bioinformatics. Prior to joining the LBNL Visualization group and the NERSC Analytics team, Gunther worked first as a postdoctoral scholar and later as a Project Scientist at the Institute for Data Analysis and Visualization (IDAV) at UC Davis focusing on visualization of three-dimensional gene expression data (with researchers of LBNL's Genomics and Life Sciences divisions), topological exploration of scalar data, and visualization of brain imaging data and experimental earthquake data. Gunther earned his Ph.D. in computer science, with a concentration on graphics and visualization, from the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany in 2003.
