About Me


Amit Haim Bermano
I am a senior lecturer (assistant professor) at the Blavatnik School of Computer Science in Tel-Aviv University. My research focuses on connecting the geometry processing field with other fields in computer graphics and vision, mainly in computational fabrication, animation, augmented reality, medical imaging and machine learning.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral Researcher at the Princeton Graphics Group, hosted by Professor Szymon Rusinkiewicz and Professor Thomas Funkhouser. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Disney Research Zurich. I have conducted my Ph.D. studies at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Markus Gross, in collaboration with the computational materials group of Disney Research Zurich. My Masters and Bachelors degrees were obtained at The Technion - Israel Institute of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Craig Gotsman.
