Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Andreas Buttinger-Kreuzhuber

Senior Researcher & Project Leader

Andreas Buttinger-Kreuzhuber is a researcher in the Integrated Simulations research group at the VRVis Research Center for Virtual Reality and Visualization. In August 2021, he received his PhD under Prof. Günter Blöschl in the Vienna Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems on accurate and fast hydrodynamic modeling of fluvial and pluvial floods at large scales.
Prior to that, Andreas Buttinger-Kreuzhuber studied Technical Mathematics at TU Wien with a focus on modeling and simulation of partial differential equations. Visit the ORCID website of Andreas Buttinger-Kreuzhuber.
