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 is currently working on Point Cloud processing and Machine Learning techniques applied to Computer Graphics
