We’re happy to announce that Professor Michael Nebeling has received the Disney Research|Studios Faculty Award 2019.

Michael traveled to the ACM SIGGRAPH 2019 conference in Los Angeles, CA, in July and received the award at DisPLAY, the Disney Mixer social event held during the conference.

Disney Research|Studios Director and ETH Zurich Professor, Markus Gross, and Associate Director, Bob Sumner, announced the award at the event and handed it over to Michael in a very nice ceremony.

The award, “In recognition of your scientific excellence”, is a recognition of Michael’s important research at the intersection of HCI and AR/VR over the past few years, with the goal of empowering non-programmers and user experience designers to create AR/VR experiences rapidly and cheaply.

Thank you, Disney!
