    Andrew J. Hanson is a professor of computer science at Indiana University, and has regularly taught courses in computer graphics, computer vision, programming languages, and scientific visualization. He received a BA in chemistry and physics from Harvard College in 1966 and a PhD in theoretical physics from MIT in 1971. Before coming to Indiana University, he did research in theoretical physics at the Institute for Advanced Study, Stanford, and Berkeley, and then in computer vision at the SRI Artificial Intelligence Center. He has published a variety of technical articles on machine vision, computer graphics, and visualization methods. He has also contributed three articles to the Graphics Gems series dealing with user interfaces for rotations and with techniques of N-dimensional geometry. His current research interests include scientific visualization (with applications in mathematics, astrophysics, and string-model physics), machine vision, computer graphics, perception, collaborative methods in virtual reality, and the design of interactive user interfaces for virtual reality and visualization applications.
