My research is in computer graphics, with an emphasis on artistic rendering and computer animation. I am interested in the connections between art and science, and am currently organizing (with others) a competition at Princeton called Art of Science. You might see my wife Esther and me at Rocky brunch with our 8 year old daughter Leila and our 3 year old son Emmet. Before Leila was born I had time for exercise, mostly playing ultimate frisbee in a pickup game at Broadmead Field.
I received a PhD from the University of Washington in 1996, after six years of living the good life as a graduate student. From 1987 to 1990, I was a software engineer at Tibco in Palo Alto where I wrote software for people who trade stock. I was an undergraduate student (class of 87) at Swarthmore College, where I studied (occasionally) physics and computer science.
