I am "außerordentlicher Universitätsprofessor" for computer science
here at the Universität Salzburg, Salzburg, Austria. In
addition, I have an appointment as adjunct associate professor at the AMS Dept. of
Stony Brook University
Stony Brook, USA; see the homepage of the Computational
Geometry Lab at SUNYSB.

the head of the
Computational Geometry and
Applications Lab within the "Visual Computing and
Multimedia" Research Group at our department. (At present, I'm also the
head of the entire VCM research group.) I have recently started to assemble a
few pages with short descriptions of (or color images related to) some of the
research projects which my students and I have (or had been) working
on. This WWW presentation of current and previous research projects is work in
progress; please bear with me (and check back to see whether I've already
gotten around to adding new stuff).
Teaching, Courses and Office Hours
Local students are invited to browse through a few
announcements related to
my teaching. (Folks, be warned that some of these pages are in German!).
Applications by Foreign Students
Students from abroad who are interested in pursuing an MSc or PhD degree with
me as their advisor are kindly asked to check out my information on choosing me as
MSc/PhD advisor prior to sending requests or applications to me.
I am married to
Held-Siratska. Olga is a pediatrist ("Facharzt für Kinder- und
Jugendheilkunde") and runs her own
("Kinderarztpraxis") in Salzburg. Our son
Georg was born in early March 2007. (The photo shows him at the age of
about nine months; as you can see, he is keen on experimenting with rigidity
theory and polyhedral combinatorics!) You are welcome to check
my private stuff
for humorous entries and links to rock climbing.
