I was born in Moscow region, Russia, and grew up in Tel Aviv, Israel.
I am currently a Professor of Computer Science at
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 am interested in theoretical foundations and practical algorithms for digital content creation tasks, such as shape representation and editing,
artistic modeling techniques, digital fabrication, computer animation and digital image manipulation. I also work on fundamental problems in digital geometry processing,
including reconstruction, filtering, parameterization, meshing and compression of geometric data.
