    Gabriel Taubin leads a group of researchers at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in the creation of new geometric computation and Image-based graphics algorithms and technologies for 3D modeling, 3D scanning, network-based graphics, and data visualization. Towards the end of 1995 he co-invented IBM’s Topological Surgery geometry compression scheme. Later on he led the effort to develop a binary format for VRML, and to extend the technology in several ways. During 1998 he led the effort to incorporate IBM’s geometry compression technology into MPEG-4 version 2, which is now at the CD level. Earlier on, he spent five years as a member of the Computer Vision group. Gabriel holds a Ph.D. in EE from Brown University in the area of Computer Vision, and a M.Sc. in Pure Mathematics from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He authored 12 patents, and published over 30 papers.
