Biography

Toon Huysmans (Geel, 1981) received the Master of Science degree in Computer Science in 2003 (magna cum laude). His graduation research concerned diamond cut optimization and was carried out at the Vision Lab of the University of Antwerp in close collaboration with the companies DiamCad and DiamScan. In 2003, he joined the Vision Lab as a PhD student where he enjoyed an IWT scholarship. His doctoral research focused on parameterization and correspondence construction for tubular surfaces and related applications. After his PhD, he became a research leader at the imec-Vision Lab, focusing on grant writing, guiding PhD students, and networking with industry, and as a post-doctoral researcher he did research on statistical shape modeling in ergonomics and orthopedics. As of 2018, he is at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of the TU Delft (The Netherlands), working on statistical human modelling for product and service innovation.
