Biography

Klaus Mueller received a PhD in computer science from The Ohio State University in 1998. He is currently a professor in the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University and is also a senior adjunct scientist at Brookhaven National Lab. From 2012-2015, he served as the founding chair of the Computer Science Department at SUNY Korea and he was also VP for Academic Affairs and Finance at SUNY Korea for two years. His current research interests are visual analytics, data science, medical imaging, and high-performance computing. He won the US National Science Foundation Early Career award in 2001, the SUNY Chancellor Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activity in 2011, and the Meritorious Service Certificate of the IEEE Computer Society in 2016. To date, he has authored about 200 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers, which have been cited more than 8,200 times. He is a frequent speaker at international conferences, has organized or participated in 18 tutorials on various topics, chaired the IEEE Visualization Conference in 2009, and was the elected chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Visualization and Computer Graphics from 2012-2015. He is  currently an associate editor-in-chief of IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics and a senior member of the IEEE.
