I am an assistant professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences in New York University. Before joining NYU, I was a senior researcher at ETH Zurich, working in the Interactive Geometry Lab. I earned my BSc and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Genoa (2008, 2012). My research interests are in digital fabrication, geometry processing, architectural geometry and discrete differential geometry. My doctoral thesis was awarded the EUROGRAPHICS Annual Award for Best PhD Thesis in 2013 and my research in computer graphics was awarded the EUROGRAPHICS Young Researcher Award in 2015. You can see my publications below and you can also download the open-source software that I am developing.

Software
  • libigl - A C++ Geometry Processing Library

    libigl is a simple c++ geometry processing library. We have a wide functionality including construction of sparse discrete differential geometry operators and finite-elements matrices such as the contangent Laplacian and diagonalized mass matrix, simple facet and edge-based topology data structures, mesh-viewing utilities for opengl and glsl, and many core functions for matrix manipulation which make Eigen feel a lot more like MATLAB.

  • SketchRetopo

    SketchRetopo is an advanced tool for converting unstructured triangle meshes to high-quality quadrangulations.

  • Refooormat - Image retargeting for iOS

    This app gives you a new way to modify your photos. It allows you to change the aspect ratio of your images with minimal visual artifacts. Important content, like people or landmarks, can be preserved while parts of the background might get stretched or cropped. The app is available as a free download in the iOS App Store for the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and iPad mini. The self-contained source code is available on github.

Miscellaneous
In my free time, I like to take photographs and I practice Kendo.
