Markus Tatzgern

Mixed and Augmented Reality Researcher

Dr. Markus Tatzgern is senior lecturer for Augmented Reality and Game Development at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. with highest distinction from the Graz University of Technology. He was post-doctoral researcher at the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Handheld Augmented Reality, a world leading research laboratory for mobile augmented reality. Before joining the Christian Doppler Laboratory, he was involved in the FP6 EU-project IPCity and developed mobile and light-weight mixed reality interfaces.

His research focuses on developing advanced visualization and interaction techniques for mobile mixed and augmented reality scenarios that allow users to explore and access information about the real world. His ultimate goal is to create augmented reality visualizations and interfaces that facilitate accessing the data we encounter in our everyday life.

His work was published at top tier conferences and journals of the field, such as IEEE ISMAR, IEEE VR and IEEE TVCG and Computers&Graphics, and also matured into several patents related to augmented reality visualization. He is also actively contributing to the research community as program comitee member and reviewer for journals and conferences.
