I’m an animation researcher and storyteller, passionate about creating characters (theatre, animation, procedural, AI) and understanding different forms of behaviour. I finished an Engineering Doctorate in Computer Animation at the University of Bath (UK), as a member of the Centre for Digital Entertainment (CDE).
My main R&D interests are in different forms of expressing character animation: procedural, behavioral (Laban motion analysis, emergence theory, AI etc) and physics based, movement and pattern analysis, mesh reconstruction and deformation, expressing emotions, humour and other human behaviours through abstract movement (automata) and mathematical functions.
