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. After working on virtual/augmented reality with Cinoptics, he now works as a contractor for Continuum Analytics, and teaches scientific Python at the University of Twente. Almar is involved in the development of Imageio, Vispy, Bokeh, and the Intereractive Editor for Python (IEP).
