    Dimitris Metaxas is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania. He specializes in the application of physics-based techniques for the shape and motion modeling, estimation and synthesis of complex objects, including flexible multi-body objects. Among others, he has developed new methods for modeling the geometry of complex objects, systematic approaches for converting geometric degrees of freedom to dynamic degrees of freedom, finite element techniques for modeling deformations and material properties, and fast physics-based constraints techniques. His framework has been successfully applied to computer vision, computer graphics, biomedical and mechanical engineering applications. Lately, he has been also been working towards the development of algorithms for realistic fluid simulation and the use of control theory algorithms in animations.
