Research Area: Digital Humans

I’m a Senior Research Scientist with the Digital Humans group at DisneyResearch|Studios. My main research areas are computer vision, graphics and machine learning, with a focus on capturing and modeling the appearance, 3D geometry and motion of dynamic scenes, and on building digital humans. I received my BSc and MSc degrees in Informatics from Federal University of Parana, Brazil, and my PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Ohio State University, USA. Prior to joining Disney Research, I was a graduate research associate with the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design and a postdoctoral researcher with the Computational Biology and Cognitive Science Lab, both at Ohio State. I was also a postdoc with Disney Research in Pittsburgh, at the Carnegie Mellon University campus.
