Hello, I am Thomas.


I am a tenured assistant professor in the Computer Graphics and Visualization group at TU Delft. Before that I was an assistant professor in the Leiden Computational Biology Center (until 2020) and a Postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Graphics and Visualization group at TU Delft. I received my PhD from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in 2013.

My research interests include Visualization and Visual Analytics, with a focus on high-dimensional data and bio-/medical applications. I lead the research and development of Cytosplore, an interactive visual analytics platform for cytometry data which is used by researchers world-wide. In 2019, I received the Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine for the Cytosplore project. In 2023, I was awarded with the inaugural VRVis Visual Computing Award for contributions to sustainable development with visual computing. Further, my research won best paper and honorable mention awards at IEEE VIS, VCBM and PacificVis. For more detail, please refer to my full cv.

If you are a master student looking for a possible theses topic, we have several open projects and possibilities within topics related to data visualization in general, visual analytics and biomedical visualization. The projects can range fundamental to very applied. If you are interested in a project in the direction of my research, please, contact me and we can discuss the possibilities.
