Complete Curriculum Vitae
Dr. Bernd Hamann is a full professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) [Department of Computer Science]. He was appointed by UC Davis in 1995. From 1991 to 1995, he was an assistant and associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Mississippi State University [Department of Computer Science and Engineering], where he was also associated with the NSF Engineering Research Center for Computational Field Simulation, now called High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HPC2) [High Performance Computing Collaboratory]. When he joined UC Davis in 1995, he obtained adjunct professor status at Mississippi State University.
At UC Davis, Bernd Hamann has had affiliations with several graduate education and training programs, including the Graduate Group of Computer Science, Graduate Group of Applied Mathematics and Graduate Program in Health Informatics. He held a University of California Presidential Chair in Undergraduate Education, allowing him to develop research opportunities for undergraduate students focusing on visualization research driven by geological data analysis needs (2006-2010). As co-director and lead principal investigator on the U.S. side, he has been co-leading the first Germany-U.S. International Research Training Group (IRTG), a Ph.D. student training effort funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for nine years (2005-2013). This effort’s title is Visualization of Large and Unstructured Data Sets. The IRTG involves the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany (overall German lead institution), University of California, Davis (U.S. lead institution), Arizona State University and The University of Utah (U.S. partner institutions) [International Research Training Group].
Bernd Hamann received a B.S. in computer science, a B.S. in mathematics, and an M.S. in computer science from the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. He received his Ph.D. in computer science from Arizona State University in 1991. He is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), and the IEEE Technical Committee on Visualization and Graphics (TCVG).
