Boris Odehnal
Univ.Prof. Dr.techn. Mag.rer.nat

Boris Odehnal is a researcher in mathematics and geometry. He holds a PhD in Geometry from the Vienna University of Technology in Austria, where he also received his habilitation in Geometry.

From 2002-2011 he was an assistant professor at the Institute of Discrete Mathematics and Geometry at the Vienna University of Technology, where he taught descriptive geometry, projective geometry, line geometry, differential geometry, scientific visualization, kinematics, and non-Euclidean geometry for students of architecture, building engineering, mathematics, mechanic engineering, and ongoing teachers.

From 2011-2012 he was professor at the Institute of Geometry at TU Dresden where he taught mathematics, descriptive geometry, and applied geometry for students of architecture, building engineering, economics, mathematics, and ongoing teachers.

In 2012, Boris Odehnal joined the Department of Geometry at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.There, he co-authored two books with Georg Glaeser on classical topics in geometry and published papers on various topics in classical, modern, and applied geometry. From 2014-2017 he supervised the PEEK project “Robotic Woodcraft“.

His work has been widely published in books, journals, and conference proceedings. He received various invitations to talk as plenary lecturer at international conferences, and serves as a reviewer for international scientific journals, and funding organizations.

In October 2023, he became a full professor for geometry at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and was made head of the Institute of Arts and Technology. Among other subjects, he is teaching courses on applied mathematics and geometry.

In the near future, Boris and his team will focus on computational geometry and its applications in various fields, such as design, architecture, and engineering with special attention on artificial intelligence in computer vision and architecture.
