”Driving change is in our genes.” - Anders Ynnerman, Professor of Scientific Visualisation
At Linköping University, we have the habit of rethinking. Constant self-challenging has been our strongest momentum since the start in 1975. The search for answers beyond the traditions and across disciplinary boundaries motivates us to find solutions to contemporary challenges. Becoming a part of Linköping University is much more than a new job. It is about making a contribution to further progress.
Welcome to join!
Anders Ynnerman, Professor of Scientific Visualisation
“Our forgiving atmosphere is unique. We can do things that no one else can.” It wasn’t by chance that Anders Ynnerman ended up at LiU, as Sweden’s first professor of visualisation. Anders’ and his colleagues’ research laid the foundation for the visualisation table. He is one of the driving forces behind the Visualization Center C, and has been involved in building up the MSc in Media Technology and Engineering. Special effects from there have made it big in Hollywood. One thing that motivates him is finding the mechanisms whereby first-class research can deliver real-world benefits. Another is taking advantage of people’s ability to see things in images, in order to interpret and disseminate science. “With visual metaphors we can communicate across cultural and generational boundaries, and between all disciplines. Getting schoolchildren to be fascinated by science is a huge kick. After all, they’re the ones who will take it to the next level.”
