1. What do you do, and how long have you been doing it?

Currently I work as a Research Engineer at the R&D Department of the Institute of Animation, Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, in Germany. My work goes in the direction of Affective Computing, more specifically emotional facial animation in virtual characters. My most recent project applied this in a research study to evaluate if stylized facial expressions of emotions are better recognized by individuals with autism.
