The Visual Computing Center would like to welcome back Professor Helmut Pottmann who recently rejoined the center in October 2018.

Helmut Pottmann is a professor of Applied Mathematics and Computational Science (AMCS) at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology and Principal Investigator of the Geometry and Computational Design group (GCD).

He was the Founding Director of the Geometric Modeling and Scientific Visualization Center, which is now the Visual Computing Center, from April 2009 to December 2013. 

Professor Pottmann shared these words on returning back to KAUST:

"After contributing to the initial building phase of KAUST as a center director, I had to move to Vienna for personal reasons. As soon as I could return to KAUST, I did so, because I enjoy my work at KAUST a lot more than at any other place. I like the strong focus on research and l highly appreciate the friendly and inspiring atmosphere in the Visual Computing Center."

On behalf of the VCC, Welcome Back to your Team!
