I am a principal research scientist at Pixar Animation Studios. My research centers on numerical methods for geometry processing and computational physics. I was awarded a SciTech Oscar in 2023 for coauthoring the design and development of Fizt2, Pixar's elastic simulation system. In 2023, I also became a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. I received a PhD degree in computer science from Caltech in 2014 supported by a Google PhD Fellowship, and earned an engineering degree in 2006 and a master degree in 2009 from Unicamp (Brazil).
