Caecilia Charbonnier (born 7 December 1981) is a former professional tennis player from Switzerland. She is the co-founder and CIO of Dreamscape Immersive, and the co-founder, President and Research Director of Artanim.
Charbonnier, who was born in Geneva, played on the WTA circuit in the late 1990s, while still competing in junior events. She was ranked 4th in Switzerland and won 11 Swiss Champion titles. A right-handed player, she is most noted for representing Switzerland in a Fed Cup World Group tie against Slovakia in 1999. She featured in two singles rubbers as well as in the doubles. Charbonnier competed in top international events as a junior, including Grand Slam tournaments, and she made the girls' doubles semi-finals at the 1998 US Open.
Retiring from tennis in 1999, Charbonnier later studied computer graphics at University of Geneva and EPFL.

In 2011, she co-founded Artanim Foundation, a non-profit research center specialized in motion capture technologies, where she serves since as President & Research Director. At Artanim, her interdisciplinary work focus on the use of motion capture for 3D animation, live performances, virtual reality (VR), movement science, orthopedics and sports medicine. The results of her research won several international scientific awards.
