Short Bio

I am a postdoc at IST Austria in the Computer Graphcis and Digital Fabrication group led by Bernd Bickel. I obtained my Ph.D. at USI Lugano under the supervision of Piotr Didyk in 2020. My thesis entitled Perception-Aware Computational Fabrication recieved the prestegious Eurographics PhD Award. My research interests are computer graphics, computational fabrication, haptic reproduction, appearance reproduction, and perception.
