About us:

Welcome to the website of the Perception, Display, and Fabrication Group at the University of Lugano in Switzerland. We conduct research in the fields of computational display and computational fabrication. Our main goal is to combine computational techniques with human perception and hardware design to create better display and fabrication techniques. We are interested in everything related to new display technologies, image/video processing, 3D printing, computational fabrication, computer graphics, and human perception.

Open positions: We are currently looking for candidates for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers interested in computational displays and computational fabrication. More information can be found here.


August 7th, 2018:

We have open Ph.D. and postdoc positions. If you are interested and you are coming to ACM Siggraph get in touch with us by sending an email to .
