About


Hello people!

I am a Ph.D. student in Character Animation and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Edinburgh, School of Informatics, Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour, supervised by Prof. Taku Komura, and working as AI Scientist at Electronic Arts, EADP in Redwood City.

Before that, I was interning at Electronic Arts, twice at Adobe Research, and was working as research associate in robotics and evolution at the University of Hamburg, where I also obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Informatics.

I am passionate about state-of-the-art technology in graphics, animation and games. My current research focuses on deep learning for real-time character animation and control, and is funded by the Principal's Career Development Ph.D. Scholarship from the University of Edinburgh.
