The Computational Fabrication Group at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory investigates problems in digital manufacturing and computer graphics. The group is led by Professor Wojciech Matusik.


Petr Kellnhofer won Eurographics Annual Award for Best PhD Thesis

Our postdoctoral researcher Petr Kellnhofer received this year's Eurographics Annual Award for Best PhD Thesis for his strong technical contribution in perceptual modeling for stereoscopic 3D by running dedicated perceptual studies, deriving new perceptual models from his findings, and integrating these models in computer graphics algorithms. Congratulations!

James Minor received NSERC Scholarship

Our Ph.D. student James Minor was recently awarded the NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada) postgraduate scholarship for his academic excellence, research ability, and leadership abilities. This prestigious and highly competitive scholarship will support James financially for the next two years. Congratulations to James!
