Iain Matthews


I am the Associate Lab Director and a Principal Research Scientist at Disney Research in Pittsburgh where I lead the computer vision group.  Previously, I was a Systems Scientist at The Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University.

Before starting at Disney I spent two years at Weta Digital in New Zealand developing the vision-based facial motion capture system used on the movies Avatar, Tintin, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and others.

More details of my research can be found on the publications page, or my Disney Research page.
