Background

profile_bg

I'm Eduardo, a first year Ph.D. Researcher at École Polytechnique in Paris (France) at the Geometric & Visual Computing (GeoViC) group, as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network CLIPE, funded by the European Union for the Horizon 2020 framework. The institutions where I am being trained to succeed during my doctoral studies are École Polytechnique - University of Cyprus - Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. I am supervised by Prof. Damien Rohmer and Prof. Marie-Paule Cani.

My research is centered on (1) multi-scale animation methods for humans and quadrupeds in dynamic environments, (2) interactive use of AI for authoring virtual content and (3) understanding/improving user-experience on real-time applications.

Prior to my Ph.D., I completed my M.Sc. at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, and wrote my thesis at the AIS group along with Robert Bosch GmbH, advised by Prof. Joschka Boedecker and Prof. Abnihav Valada. Additionally, I worked as research assistant on SLAM and Autonomous Driving simulations with Unreal Engine.
