I'm a Passionate Computer Scientist

I Am

Llogari Casas holds a Ph.D. in Augmented Reality and has an extensive background in Web & iOS Development. He previously undertook a 12-month long internship at Disney Research Los Angeles, won a prestigious 36-month long EU Marie Curie Fellowship and a Doctoral Consortium place at ACM SIGGRAPH Asia.

He is currently the CEO of 3FINERY LTD, a spin-out of Edinburgh Napier University that offers a novel Augmented Reality solution by bringing real-world objects to life on mobile devices. He is also the CSO of Flash Park SL, a Spanish startup that provides a revolutionary solution to efficiently find parking spots on city streets using an automatic parking detection system that works without user interaction and retains a zero carbon footprint.

Research

Contribution to ground breaking computer vision, graphics and fabrication research works, including real-time integration of fabricated object registration, tracking, and actuation with video game simulation and gameplay components.
