Brief Bio

I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at Dartmouth College. Before coming to Dartmouth, I was a Senior Research Scientist heading the rendering group at Disney Research Zürich, and an adjunct lecturer at ETH Zürich. I obtained my Ph.D. (2008) and M.S. (2005) in computer graphics from UC San Diego, and a B.S. (2003) in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign.

My research is concerned with capturing, simulating, manipulating, and physically realizing complex visual appearance. In effect, I strive to understand why things look the way they do, how we can simulate their interaction with light efficiently, how we can intuitively author or edit that appearance, and how we can create physical objects with control over their appearance. My work in these areas has been incorporated into production rendering systems and has been used in the making of feature films, including Disney's Tangled and Big Hero 6. In 2013, I received the Eurographics Young Researcher Award.

When I can find the spare time I enjoy hiking and photography. In a previous life I enjoyed creating 3D models and animations (some of which you can find in the gallery section), primarily using Lightwave 3D.
