Dati personali: Kai Hormann
Kai Hormann is an associate professor in the faculty of informatics at the University of Lugano. He received a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Erlangen in 2002 and spent two years as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Multi-Res Modeling Group at Caltech and the CNR Institute of Information Science and Technologies in Pisa, before joining the faculty at Clausthal University of Technology as an assistant professor in 2004. During the winter term 2007/2008 he visited the Berlin Mathematical School at Freie Universität Berlin as a BMS substitute professor.
His research interests are focussed on the mathematical foundations of geometry processing algorithms as well as their applications in computer graphics and related fields. In particular, he is working on parameterization of meshes, surface reconstruction from point clouds, barycentric coordinates for arbitrary polygons, and subdivision of curves and surfaces.
Prof. Hormann has published over 40 papers in the professional literature and
is an active member of ACM Siggraph and SIAM. He served on more than 20
of the leading graphics and geometry conference programme committees and
is a frequent reviewer for international funding agencies and the top journals
in his field.
Moreover, he is an associate editor of Computer Aided Geometric Design and Computer Graphics Forum.
