Atia Quadri is an international 3D animator and is one of the first women to ever work in the Pakistani animation industry. She worked as a 3D animator on movies, TV series, commercials, and shipped a AAA game.
She earned her MFA in Animation from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and worked as a freelance animator until she was offered a full-time teaching position at Bowling Green University and thus made the shift into academia.
Ms. Quadri enjoys combining animation technology with the aesthetic value of animation art.
She is currently an Assistant Professor at the R.I.T. School of Film and Animation in Rochester, New York, where she continues to work on animation projects and influence new generations of animators.
