Kostiantyn at IEEE VIS 2014 in Paris, France. November 2014

Welcome to Kostiantyn Kucher's homepage!

This website is mainly dedicated to my academic work.

I was born in Odessa, Ukraine in 1989. My full name in Ukrainian (including the patronymic) is Костянтин Сергійович Кучер (Kostiantyn Sergiyovich Kucher); Kostiantyn is a unique Ukrainian form of the given name Konstantin.

I received the Master's degree with honors in Computer Science (Information Control Systems and Technologies) from Odessa National Polytechnic University in 2012.

During 2013–2018, I was a PhD student in Computer and Information Science with a specialization in Information Visualization and Visual Analytics under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Andreas Kerren with the ISOVIS group at the Department of Computer Science and Media Technology at Linnaeus University (Växjö, Sweden). I defended my PhD dissertation entitled Sentiment and Stance Visualization of Textual Data for Social Media in April 2019 and received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Science.

During December 2018–December 2019, I was a research assistant with the ISOVIS group. Since January 2020, I am an associate senior lecturer (biträdande lektor) at Linnaeus University.
