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.

I'm a PhD student in computer science at UBC, and currently I'm also an intern at Pixar for 6 months (Jun-Nov 2015). I love 2D and 3D animated movies, and my research is about improving the computer tools that make the magic happens :-) More specifically, I spend my days trying to discover new mathematical representations, program computer algorithms, and design user interfaces that help artists to create such inspiring films.

Research in computer animation is truly fascinating. It combines art and science in beautiful ways: science enables new artistic mediums, and art stimulates imagination to move science forward:
