Hi there, I'm Boris!

I'm a PhD student in Computer Animation at UBC, supervised by Michiel van de Panne.

I like to create all sort of things, and give them life.

Welcome to my personal website!

I love animated films, maths, and computer programming, so I ended up being a research scientist in Computer Animation. What does that entail? I spend my days trying to discover new mathematical representations, computer algorithms, and user interfaces that help artists to create better animated films, in a lesser amount of time. Currently, I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia, and a research intern at Pixar.

Research in Computer Animation is truly fascinating. It combines Art and Science in beautiful ways: Science empowers Art by enabling new artistic mediums, and Art empowers Science by stimulating creativity. As a great scientist said:

“Imagination is more important than knowledge” — Albert Einstein
