Simone Melzi

I am a Post Doctoral researcher at Università degli studi di Verona (Italy). I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Università degli studi di Verona (2018), and graduated in math at University of Milan "La Statale" (2013). I received the EG-Italy PhD thesis award (2018). I work on geometry processing and 3D shape analysis, extending, applying and formulating signal processing techniques for (possibly high-dimensional) signals on surfaces. I published about 15 papers on this topic in top-tier venues and journals in computer vision and graphics (TOG, CGF, SIGGRAPH, ICCV, EUROGRAPHICS, SGP). I served as Volunteer Chair at 3DV 2018. I served as reviewer for top conferences (EUROGRAPHICS, BMVC, 3DV). I maintain fruitful collaborations with many world leaders in this area (Ecole polytechnique, USI Lugano, Sapienza U Rome, University of Glasgow, Tel Aviv University, University College London (UCL) and Technical University of Munich (TUM), Politecnico di Milano (PoliMI)).
