Stefan Bruckner is professor of visualization at the Department of Informatics of the University of Bergen in Norway. He investigates methods for gaining insight into complex data to further scientific understanding and discovery, medical diagnosis and treatment, and engineering, as well as techniques for communicating these findings to the public. Building on these foundations, his current interests include the development of novel interactive approaches for the inquiry of large-scale heterogeneous data spaces in data-driven science. Before his professorial appointment in Bergen in 2013, he was an assistant professor at the TU Wien, Austria where he also received his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2008 and was awarded the habilitation degree (venia docendi) in Practical Computer Science in 2012.

He has co-authored over 100 research papers on a variety of topics in visual computing including work on areas such as illustrative visualization, volume rendering, smart visual interfaces, biomedical data visualization, and visual parameter space exploration.

He was program co-chair of EuroVis, PacificVis, the Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine, the Eurographics Medical Prize, and is an associate editor of the journal Computers & Graphics. He currently serves on the Eurographics Executive Committee and is a member of Eurographics, ACM SIGGRAPH, and the IEEE Computer Society.
