I joined the faculty at Cornell in Fall 2002; my research and teaching center around computer graphics. Before I came to Cornell I worked in the Computer Graphics lab at Stanford on material appearance modeling and on the The Digital Michelangelo Project, and before that at Microsoft Research and at HP Laboratories. My Ph.D. is from Cornell in 1998.
