Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 2000

    Marc Levoy is an associate professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He received a B. Architecture in 1976 from Cornell University, an M.S. in 1978 from Cornell University, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1989 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Levoy’s early research centered on computer-assisted cartoon animation, leading to development of a computer animation system for Hanna-Barbera Productions. His recent publications are in the areas of volume visualization, rendering algorithms, computer vision, geometric modeling, and user interfaces for imaging and visualization. His current research interests include digitizing the shape and appearance of physical objects using multiple sensing technologies, the creation, representation, and rendering of complex geometric models, image-based modeling and rendering, and applications of computer graphics in art history, preservation, restoration, and archeology. Levoy received the NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award in 1991 and the SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award in 1996 for his work in volume rendering.
