Noeska Smit joined UiB’s visualization group from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and took up the position as associate professor in the field of medical visualization at the Department of Informatics on 1 January 2017. This is part of a larger medical visualization initiative, in which Helse Bergen and the University of Bergen have established a joint Medical Imaging and Visualization Centre at Helse Bergen, with NOK 33 million in funding from Bergen Research Foundation.
The Visualization Group at the Department of Informatics employs advanced computer graphics and modern graphics hardware to achieve cutting-edge visualization for improved insight into data, leading to knowledge crystallisation and improved decision-making. The group is active in the field of computational medicine – a research field that is growing strongly.
The appointment of Associate Professor Noeska Smit is part of a strategic investment in this field. It will strengthen the basic research that will be important in relation to the new medical visualization centre.
