Almar Klein studied Electrical Engineering at the University of Twente. In his PhD he developed algorithms to study the motions of stent grafts in abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), using ECG-gated CT data. During that time, he came in touch with Python as a tool for scientific computing. To be able to visualize the data and algorithm results, he started working on visvis, a scientific visualization toolkit based on Python and OpenGL. Currently, Almar is involved in vispy, a collaborative project to bring a powerful interface to OpenGL that can be used by multiple visualization projects. Further, he is the main author of the Interactive Editor for Python IEP.
