Bernd Bickel is a Professor at IST Austria, heading the Computer Graphics and Digital Fabrication group. He is a computer scientist interested in computer graphics and its overlap in robotics, computer vision, machine learning, material science, and digital fabrication. His main objective is to push the boundaries of how digital content can be efficiently created, simulated, and reproduced.
Bernd's work focuses on three closely related challenges: developing (1) novel modeling and simulation methodologies, (2) efficient representation and design algorithms for materials, 3D geometry, and functional objects, and (3) custom measurement systems and data-driven techniques for bridging the gap between the real and virtual world.
