Manuel Lang, Disney Research Zurich

Manuel Lang is a Ph.D. student at ETH Zurich and co-funded by Disney Research Zurich. He works in the field of computer graphics and computer vision. In his current research he focuses on video production and editing tools in particular for stereoscopic 3D. Manuel received his M.Sc. in Computer Science in 2008 from ETH Zurich. After graduation Manuel worked as an intern for NVIDIA where he could pursue his additional interest in GPU programming. Manuel workes as a research assistant in the Computer Graphics Lab headed by Prof. Markus Gross. His research and projects are embedded within Disney Research Zurich.
