    SIGGRAPH 1999

    Michael Gleicher is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He is starting a new group in the department for research in graphics and animation, including the design of a new curriculum in graphics and a new graduate course in Computer Animation. His research interests include computer animation, computer graphics, user interfaces and computer vision. A current project involves the application of spacetime constraint methods to motion editing and tracking. He has presented many papers at SIGGRAPH and similar conferences, including several on motion editing and related topics. Prior to joining the faculty at Wisconsin, he was a research scientist at Autodesk and Apple. He was awarded a PhD. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University for his work on constraint-based user interfaces, and also received an M.S. in Computer Science from CMU and a B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering from Duke University.
