Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 2000

    Dr. Norman I. Badler is Professor of Computer and Information Science and Director of the Center for Human Modeling and Simulation at the University of Pennsylvania. Active in computer graphics since 1968, his research focuses on human figure modeling, manipulation, and animation. He is the originator of the “Jack” software system (now a commercial product from Engineering Animation, Inc.). Badler received the BA degree in Creative Studies Mathematics from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1970, the MSc in Mathematics in 1971, and the Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1975, both from the University of Toronto.

    SIGGRAPH 1995

    Norman I. Badler is a Professor of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania and has been on that faculty since 1974. Active in computer graphics since 1968 with more than 100 technical papers, his research focuses on human figure modeling, manipulation, and animation. He is the originator of the Jack software system, now used at over 50 active commercial, government, and University sites worldwide. His expertise  includes real-time 3-D graphics, intuitive user interfaces, complex object modeling, and animation systems. Badler received the BA degree in Creative Studies Mathematics from the  University of California at Santa Barbara in 1970, the MSc in Mathematics in 1971, and the PhD in Computer Science in 1975, both from the University of Toronto. He is Co-Editor of the Journal Graphical Models and Image Processing and co-author of the recent book Simulating Humans published by Oxford University Press. He also directs the Center for Human Modeling and Simulation with five full time staff members and about 40 students.

    SIGGRAPH 1991

    Dr. Badler is the Cecilia Fitler Moore Professor and Chair of Computer and Information Science at the University of Pennsylvania, and has been on the faculty since 1974. He has been active in computer graphics since 1968 with more than 85 technical papers. His research focuses on human figure modeling, manipulation, and animation. Dr. Badler is Co-Editor of the Journal “Graphical Models and Image Processing”. He also directs the Computer Graphics Research Laboratory with two full time staff members and about 40 students.
