NewsI am looking for PhD students and Post-Docs to do research in digital fabrication, computational design, numerical simulation and optimization, as well as physics-based animation. Please contact me if you are interested!
About Me I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research at the University of Montréal. Until June 2017, I was a Research Scientist at Disney Research Zurich, heading the group on Computational Design and Digital Fabrication. I obtained my Master's degree and PhD (Dr. rer. nat) in Computer Science from the University of Tübingen. Before joining Disney, I spent a year at the computer graphics group at ETH Zürich.
