About me

Markus is an expert for Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. He has gained extensive experience in scientific collaboration with other disciplines in various Digital Heritage projects, e.g. from 2010-2016 he was working intensively with an international group of archaeologists on digital documentation and analysis methods of rock art. He has developed approaches for surface segmentation, shape classification and pecking style analysis of petroglyphs based on 2D and 3D images thereof. The collaboration was awarded the Europa Nostra award for Cultural Heritage 2016.

In a second strand of scientific work, Markus works on digital artefacts that enhance the museum experience. His group developed a long line of multi-touch tabletop applications for museums. The digital tabletop applications have mostly been designed and developed for young target groups and were and currently are exhibited e.g. in the Admont Abbey, the Prunksaal of the Austrian National Library, the Triennale Design Museum in Milano and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at Cambridge University. Currently he is investigating the inclusion of the visitor ́s own devices in the digital ecosystems of museums.
