Andreas Bueckle is a PhD Candidate in Information Science in the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University Bloomington. His research interest is interactive information visualization in virtual reality (VR). Born and raised in Germany, he holds a B.A. in Media Studies from Eberhard Karls University in Tuebingen and an M.A. in Communications from Berlin University of the Arts. From early on, he developed a deep interest in digital artifacts, most notably video and film. After working as a video journalist and cameraman on projects in Germany, France, India, and the US, he decided to switch to a more technical education and started to pursue my PhD in Information Science, working with Dr. Katy Borner at Indiana University Bloomington.
