About

My name is Matthew Hamilton. Since 2015, I have worked for a holographic display start-up Avalon Holographics. I also run a company called Birch Scientific. Previously, I worked for GRI Simulations, a simulation and visualization company, as a NSERC/RDC-NL Postdoctoral Industrial R&D Fellow. I completed my PhD in Computing Science at the University of Alberta in 2013 working in the Advance Man-Machine Interfaces Lab where I studied multiscale representation for spatiotemporal visualization in collaboration with Project Cybercell and the Institute for Biomolecular Design (IBD). Prior to that, I completed my undergraduate at Memorial University in Pure Mathematics and Computer Science.

My research has focused on data visualization, particularly for science and engineering simulation and imaging data. I am also interested in rendering and capture of realistic imagery, particularly as it pertains in visualization and generation displays (AR/VR, light field, holographic, etc.).

For fun, I like to kayak, play guitar, and drink craft beer.
