I am a lecturer at the Computer Science Department, and a member of the Centre for Intelligent Data Analysis research group at Brunel. I am doing research in computer graphics, physics-based animation, real-time physics, skinning, secondary motions, cloth and fluid simulation. I have focused my career both on computer science and digital arts. My ultimate goal is to improve the quality of 3D animated movies, video games and VR/AR/XR through physically based simulations of virtual characters, cloth, soft bodies, fluids and rigid bodies. Towards this goal, I intend to advance computer games and computer animation on various levels, mainly through efficient physics-based algorithms, skeletal based deformation, and machine learning.
Before joining Brunel, I was a research associate at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) at University College London. Prior, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Computer Science Research Institute of Toulouse (IRIT) funded by Centre International de Mathématiques et Informatique de Toulouse (CIMI) after a successful grant acquisition for 2 years. before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, in the Institute for Multiscale Simulation (MSS). I completed my Ph.D. studies in the ALCOR Lab at Sapienza University of Rome in 2016.
