Dr. Felix Hülsmann
From fall 2008 to 2011 I studied Cognitive Computer Science (BA) at Bielefeld University. Afterwards, from Fall 2011 to 2013 I studied Intelligent Systems (MA). I worked for the Artificial Intelligence Group from February 2010 to summer 2014, first as a student assistant and from 2013 until the retirement of Prof. Wachsmuth in July 2014 as a research assistant. From 2014 to 2018 I worked for the Computer Graphics and Geometry Processing Group.
My favorite fields of reserach are
- Virtual Reality
- Processing of human motion
- Machine Learning
- Artificial Intelligence.
Besides, I am interested in Cognitive Science and a few other cool areas.
In private, I like playing the classical guitar. I also enjoy reading (especially fantasy and science fiction novels) and writing. When I have enough time, I do photography, especially nature, but also people and concert photography.
Another great part of my leisure time I spend voluntary working as a youth-councellor for children and teenagers and organizing leisure time activities.
