I am a Research Scientist and Simulation Team Lead at Meta Reality Labs specializing in physics based animations. I served on the SIGGRAPH 2019 and 2020 Immersive Pavilion committee. I also served as a committee member for High Performance Graphics 2021.

I am the author of the book Cloth Simulation for Computer Graphics

I am working in the exciting field of graphics research and how it relates to virtual humans, avatars and digital clothing. Throughout my academic journey, I have had the privilege of interning at Adobe Research and Pixar Animation Studios' research group on two occasions. After completing my PhD at KU Leuven University, I joined Pixar as a postdoc. I have made several computer animated short movies [link]

Cloth Simulation For Computer Graphics
Physics based animation is commonplace in animated feature films and even special effects for live-action movies. Think about a recent movie and there will be some sort of special effects such as explosions or virtual worlds. Cloth simulation is no different and is ubiquitous because most virtual characters (hopefully!) wear some sort of clothing.

The focus of this book is physics based cloth simulation. We start by providing background information and discuss a range of applications. This book provides explanations of multiple cloth simulation techniques. More specifically, we start with the most simple explicitly integrated mass-spring model and gradually work our way up to more complex and commonly used implicitly integrated continuum techniques in state-of-the-art implementations. We give an intuitive explanation of the techniques and give additional information on how to efficiently implement them on a computer.
