Marcus Volz is a research fellow at the University of Melbourne, where he is studying geometric networks, optimisation and computational geometry.

He has a PhD in engineering / applied mathematics, and has worked previously as a consultant developing simulation models and animations of industrial processes.

His interests and skills revolve around visualisation, and he is always looking for opportunities to represent complex information in novel visual ways to help accelerate the learning process, and to uncover unexpected or unintuitive results.
