Homepage of Alexandre Kaspar

I am a recent PhD from MIT CSAIL, now working as the lead engineer of a recently founded startup (Topologic Technologies, Inc.) where I develop digital tools for computational weft knitting and on-demand garment production.

Previously, I was a research assistant in the Computational Design and Fabrication Group of Professor Wojciech Matusik. I also had the chance to work with people at the Computer Graphics and Geometry laboratory of Professor Mark Pauly.

My interests span digital and physical fabrication, computer graphics and vision, machine learning and HCI. You can find my latest CV here.
