Loïc Ciccone


I am a PhD student in the Computer Graphics Laboratory of ETH Zürich, under the supervision of Prof. Robert W. Sumner. My research focuses on the creation of intuitive tools for the control of 3D animated scenes.

My experience talking with professional artists from Disney Research and Walt Disney Animation Studios largely influences my work. Understanding their needs and designing the interfaces and algorithms to tackle them is my motivation.
