I was born in Moscow region, Russia, and grew up in Tel Aviv, Israel. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Computer Science (tenure-track) at ETH Zurich. I lead the Interactive Geometry Lab at the Institute of Visual Computing. Prior to joining ETH I was an Assistant Professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University (2008-2011). I earned my BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science and PhD in Computer Science from Tel Aviv University (2000, 2006). Following my studies, I received the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellowship and spent two years as a postdoc at the Technical University of Berlin.
I'm interested in theoretical foundations and practical algorithms for digital content creation tasks, such as shape representation and editing, artistic modeling techniques, computer animation and digital image manipulation. I also work on fundamental problems in digital geometry processing, including reconstruction, filtering, parameterization and compression of geometric data.Full CV
