Joerg Meyer is a Computer Systems Engineer in the Computer & Data Science Department of the Computational Research Division (CRD) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). As a member of the Visualization Group, his research is focused on large-scale, parallel scientific data visualization and high-performance computing support for visualization applications.
Dr. Meyer has received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. He worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of California, Davis, and as a researcher and faculty member of Computer Science at the National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center (ERC) at Mississippi State Universtiy. Prior to his appointment at LBNL, Dr. Meyer held a faculty position in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science & Biomedical Engineering at the University of California at Irvine.
Dr. Meyer's research efforts are aimed at developing novel visualization algorithms, using state-of-the-art visual analytics techniques and providing parallel supercomputing support to researchers from various scientific disciplines to help them understand their experimental and simulation data. He has developed interactive rendering methods for large, time-varying scientific data sets using wavelet transformation, space-subdivision and hardware acceleration methods. Dr. Meyer's research is focused on scientific visualization with applications in Geology (environmental clean-up), Civil Engineering (ground motion and structural response simulations for earthquake visualizations, disaster mitigation), and Biomedical Imaging (large-scale, interactive 3D volume rendering of CT/MRI data, image enhancement and segmentation). The common theme for these interdisciplinary research domains is the occurrence of tera- to exa-byte data sets and the development of solutions for real-time, interactive rendering and visual analysis of scientific data.
