Research Interests

My research activity started in the field of geometry processing, focusing on fundamental problems such as surface parameterization and surface deformation. Subsequently, it evolved towards visually accurate acquisition and modeling of real-world deformation, seeking simplified yet principled representations by reasoning on geometric, mechanical, and numerical considerations.
