Moritz Bächer is a Research Scientist at Disney Research where he leads the Computational Design and Manufacturing group. His research interests lie at the intersection of computer graphics and digital fabrication, spanning a wide range of computational aspects therein: computational and interactive design, physically-based and geometric modeling, and data-driven techniques. He applies his knowledge to tackle problems at the toy, animatronic, and architectural scale. Before joining Disney, he received a Ph.D. from the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and graduated with a Masters from ETH Zurich. His work has recently been featured as research highlight in the Communications of the ACM.
