About Me

Picture of Eder

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at IST Austria working with Bernd Bickel in the Computer Graphics and Digital Fabrication group. I focus on physically-based simulation (including data-driven approaches and experimental capture of real world behaviors) and its application to computational design and digital fabrication.

I obtained my PhD. in November 2014 at Rey Juan Carlos University (URJC) as part of the Modeling and Virtual Reality Group (GMRV), where I worked on modeling and estimation of hyperelasticity and deformation models. My PhD. mentor was Miguel A. Otaduy. Previously I also worked on algorithms for contact simulation between rigid and deformable bodies.

During my PhD. I did several internships. From October to December 2010 I was a Technology Intern at Disney Research Zurich. From August to October 2012 I did an internship at Walt Disney Animation Studios. And during the summer 2013 I was a Visiting Research Assistant at Institute for Creative Technologies.
