My research and teaching are in computer graphics and vision, centered around how optics and mechanics determine the appearance of materials. I got my Ph.D. from Cornell in 1998, and held research positions at HP Laboratories, Microsoft Research, and Stanford University before I rejoined Cornell in 2002.
Computer Graphics and Vision: realistic rendering, material models (optical and mechanical), appearance capture, simulation, and computational photography.
