Andreas Bueckle is a PhD Candidate in Information Science at the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University Bloomington. His research interests include interactive information visualization and data visualization literacy 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, Andreas 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 his PhD in Information Science, working with Dr. Katy Borner. Andreas has also used his experience in 3D design and programming to develop visualization prototypes for LASG sculptures, specifically for Sentient Veil (2017) and Amatria (since 2018). Andreas has been a member of LASG since the inaugural symposium in 2016. Together with his advisor Dr. Katy Borner, he gave the keynote at the 2019 LASG Symposium at OCAD University in Toronto, Canada.
