Holly Rushmeier, newly named because the John C. Malone Professor of Computer Science, focuses her studies on shape and appearance seize, packages of perception in laptop portraits, modeling material look, and growing computational tools for cultural historical past.
Rushmeier earned her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. Ranges in mechanical engineering from Cornell University. She commenced her educational career on the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she carried out backed research in the vicinity of computer images image synthesis and taught classes in heat transfer and numerical strategies at both the undergraduate and graduate stages. She then joined the computing and mathematics team of workers of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, that specialize in scientific data visualization.
From 1996 to 2004 Rushmeier become a studies staff member on the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, wherein she worked on a variety of records visualization troubles in applications starting from engineering to finance. She additionally served in the location of acquisition of information required for generating sensible laptop images models, such as a task to create a virtual model of Michelangelo’s Florence Pietà, and the improvement of a scanning gadget to seize form and appearance statistics for imparting Egyptian cultural artifacts at the World Wide Web. She joined the Yale school in 2004 as a professor of pc science, and currently co-leads the Computer Graphics Group on the Department of Computer Science.
Rushmeier is a broadly published contributor to see-reviewed instructional journals. She currently serves as the editorial forums of ACM Transactions on Applied Perception, the Visual Computer, and Computers and Graphics.
The Yale professor’s honors include a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator award and the ACM SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award. She is an elected member of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering and a fellow of the ACM.
