Marcus Magnor heads the Computer Graphics Lab of the Computer Science Department at Technische Universität Braunschweig (TU Braunschweig).

He received his BA (1995) and MS (1997) in Physics from Würzburg University and the University of New Mexico, respectively, and his PhD (2000) in Electrical Engineering from Erlangen University. For his post-graduate studies, he joined the Computer Graphics Lab at Stanford University. In 2002, he established the Independent Research Group Graphics-Optics-Vision at the Max-Planck-Institut Informatik in Saarbrücken. He completed his habilitation in 2005 and received the venia legendi for Computer Science from Saarland University. In 2009, he was Fulbright Scholar at the University of New Mexico, USA, where he holds an appointment as Adjunct Professor at the Physics and Astronomy Department. In 2011, Marcus Magnor was elected member of the Engineering Class of the Braunschweigische Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft. He is laureate of the Wissenschaftspreis Niedersachsen 2012.

His research interests concern visual computing, i.e. visual information processing from image formation, acquisition, and analysis to image synthesis, display, perception, and cognition. Areas of research include, but are not limited to, computer graphics, computer vision, visual perception, image processing, computational photography, astrophysics, imaging, optics, visual analytics, and visualization (research).
