Hi. I am João/Josh.

I'm an early-stage researcher at the Vienna University of Technology.

I'm a PhD candidate and my current research focuses on using deep learning for optimizing real-time rendering and animation production pipelines. Outside of computer graphics, I am primarily known for being one of the most prominent developers of addons for World of Warcraft, used by millions of players. I started creating my own software at a young age and since then I conciliated development with studies or research.
