An electrical engineer and computer science researcher, Luiz Gonzaga Jr is Adjunct Professor of Applied Computing at Unisinos University’s Polytechnic School. His research spans 3-D visualization and geoinformatics, with applications of gpu computing, computer vision and computer graphics. He has focused on questions such as: What actually maps from outcrops and how extracts feature from rocks feasible for oil and gas industry? How can we represent multiscale data from outcrops and subsurface data into an integrated computational environment? How can imaging low lighting environments as caves or even moving deformable objects?
