I’m a PhD student currently working at Inria Sophia-Antipolis in the GraphDeco team.
My work focuses in the computational design and fabrication of self-actuated structures, I’m broadly interested in computer graphics, geometry processing and simulation and especially in exploiting the links between geometry and physics to create computational design algorithms.

Fabsim is a small simulation library written in C++ using Eigen. It comprises different material models for simulating rods, membranes and shells and is meant to be easy to use.
