My name is Wouter van Toll. I am a lecturer at the Department of Information and Computing Sciences at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. Previously, I was a PhD student and scientific programmer there.

My research focuses on path planning and crowd simulation. I have defended my PhD thesis (Navigation for Characters and Crowds in Complex Virtual Environments) on March 30, 2017.

Latest publication:
The Medial Axis of a Multi-Layered Environment and its Application as a Navigation Mesh
In ACM Transactions on Spatial Algorithms and Systems, vol. 4 (1), pp. 2:1-2:34, 2018.

Research Project?

If you are a UU student and you want to do a research project on path planning, crowd simulation, or related topics, feel free to send me an e-mail or stop by my office.
