Christian Schumacher

About

I am a fourth-year PhD student at the Computer Graphics Lab at ETH Zurich and at Disney Research Zurich.
My advisor is Prof. Dr. Markus Gross and I am part of the Materials Group led by Dr. Bernhard Thomaszewski.

My research interests lie in the areas of physically-based simulation, animation, optimization, and fabrication.
