Ingrid Hotz received her M.S. degree in theoretical Physics from the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich Germany and the PhD degree from the Computer Science Department at the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany.
During 2003–2006 she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Data Analysis and Visualization (IDAV) at the University of California. From 2006–2013 she was the leader of a research group at the Zuse Institute in Berlin Germany. From 2013–2015 she was the head of the scientific visualization group at the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
Since 2015 she is a Professor in Scientific Visualization at the Linköping University in Scientific Visualization and has an affiliation with the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) in Linköping.
The main focus of her research lies in the area of data analysis and scientific visualization, ranging from basic research questions to effective solutions to visualization problems in applications including flow analysis, engineering and physics, medical applications, and mechanical engineering ranging from small- to large-scale simulations.
Her research builds on ideas and methods originating from different areas of computer sciences and mathematics, such as computer graphics, computer vision, dynamical systems, computational geometry, and combinatorial topology.
