Torsten Hädrich

I am a PhD student in the Computational Sciences Group of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). My research interests are computer graphics and the simulation of natural phenomena. I work on interactive modeling methods, animation and physically-based simulation in real-time graphics. Previously, I studied Information Engineering (M.Sc.) at the University of Konstanz and Computer Science and Media (B.Sc.) at the Stuttgart Media University.
