Dr. Pedro Hermosilla Casajus

Pedro Hermosilla Casajus obtained his PhD in Computing from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya in 2017. Throughout the development of his thesis, Advanced inspection techniques for molecular simulations, he developed new techniques to improve both speed and quality of the most commonly used molecular representation methods. Moreover, he developed a new tool to provide insight into the underlying forces which drive molecular simulations. 

In September 2017 he joined the Visual Computing group in Ulm as a PostDoc, where he will continue working in the field of Scientific Visualization.

At the moment, I am giving the following lectures:

Open Topics for Theses

I offer different thesis topics related to Molecular Visualization, such as efficient rendering of molecular data or advanced illumination techniques for molecular visualization, and Machine Learning techniques for unstructured data, such us point clouds or molecules. If you are interested in writing a thesis on one of these topics, write me an email or drop by my office.
