Nico Pietroni – Molding is the new Black
Nico Pietroni is a senior lecturer in the School of Software within FEIT at UTS. His research focus is within the fields of computer graphics and geometry processing and investigates concepts and practical algorithms for the creation and manipulation of digital shape representation. A particluar interest of his is in how geometry processing intersects with architecture, artistic modelling and digital fabrication. His primary goal is to push the boundaries of current industrial production pipelines by exploiting the theoretical foundations in geometry processing. This includes mesh parametrization, surface abstraction and global optimization applied to the entertainment industry, digital fabrication and architectural geometry.
