Dr. Denis Tomé

Senior Researcher at Apple
I research at the intersection between computer vision and graphics, to help facilitate the creation of digital humans. From markerless mocap solutions, data driven animation, to tools to easily and quickly help artists in character creation. Examples of work which I contributed to is: products within the Apple Vision Pro lineup, the metahuman creator tool and The Matrix Awakens.
Before that, I worked on solutions for 3D human pose estimation both from external views as well as for VR/AR applications from wearable devices. Such models were designed with limited data availability constraints and with the flexibility to rely on different heterogeneous data sources.
I received my Ph.D. from University College London (UCL) under the supervision of Prof. Lourdes Agapito and Prof. Gabriel Brostow as a member of the Vision and Imaging Science Group. My research was funded by the SecondHands European project.
