Ben Knorlein

At CCV Ben uses his knowledge of Computer Graphics, Computer Vision and Human Computer Interaction to develop software for different departments of Brown University and to develop, maintain and demonstrate applications using the CAVE system of CCV. The main focus of his work is the software development for the XROMM project. XROMM uses biplanar x-ray video in combination with 3D models of bone morphology to recover highly accurate 3D motion of bones during rapid movements, e.g. bird flight, frog jumping or human running.

Dr. Benjamin Knörlein acquired his Ph.D. at the Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, Switzerland (ETH Zurich) where he was working on a medical training simulator using visuo-haptic Augmented Reality. Before that he studied computational visualistics in Koblenz, Germany.
