I’m Eduardo Alvarado, a 3rd-year Ph.D. student at École Polytechnique in Paris (France). I work in the Visual Worlds: Temporal Analysis, Animation and Authoring (VISTA) group, under the supervision of Prof. Damien Rohmer and Prof. Marie-Paule Cani. I am part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network CLIPE, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 framework. Prior to my Ph.D., I got my M.Sc. in Embedded Systems and AI at Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg and my B.Sc. in Electronics and Automation Engineering at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.
My research is centered on plausible, interactive and multi-scale 3D animation (physically-based, kinematic) for humans and animals in dynamic and deformable environments, with focus on authoring tools for the entertainment industry (games, VR).
