In this talk we will outline a multi-scale method for constructing bi-Lipschitz embeddings for bounded curvature manifolds and orbifolds. The results heavily rely on ideas from collapsing theory. We outline two proofs; one based solely on collapsing theory and a more algebraic proof. The algebraic approach leads to more quantitative collapsing theory results for certain model spaces, and thus permits us to give some explicit bounds for the bi-Lipschitz constants.
