About me

I am a researcher in the Extreme Computing Group (XCG) group at Microsoft Research. My research interests include augmented reality, 3D Modeling, Constraint Satisfaction Problems, and image manipulation.

Prior to working at Microsoft, I received my PhD from Tel Aviv University, working on various 3D Shape Matching and Editing projects.
