Broadly speaking, I am interested in all areas of computer graphics and computer vision. My work seeks to address the following high-level questions:
Computer Graphics: What powerful tools can we provide to artists, designers, scientists, and novice users for creating beautiful, expressive, artistic, and/or illustrative imagery and animation?
Computer Vision: How can we visually understand the world, extract meaning from images, and model the human visual system?
Moreover, I am interested in applications of Machine Learning to these two areas, as well as applications to Human-Computer Interaction.
