Research Interests

My current research interests are related to the following topics:
  • real time rendering
  • 3D capture and reconstruction
  • image based rendering
  • virtual and augmented reality.

About me

Dr. Rafael Kuffner dos Anjos is a Postdoc Researcher at CMIC, Victoria University of Wellington. All his studies were at Técnico Lisboa (BSc, MSc, and, most recently, PhD in information systems and computer science). There, Rafael worked with the Visualization and Intelligent Multimodal Interfaces Group at INESC-ID Lisbon, and was a part of the BlackBox Lab at  FCSH-NOVA.

While his PhD research was focused on image-based rendering, he used this work at VIMMI to collaborate with HCI researchers on VR and AR topics, and worked with the performance arts community in the BlackBox lab.

More details can be found on Rafael's personal website.
