  • SIGGRAPH 1998

    Steven J. Gortler received a B.A. in 1989 in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics from Queen’s College, CUNY in 1989 and his Ph.D. in 1995 from Princeton University. His thesis, “Wavelet Methods for Computer Graphics”, explored both geometric modeling and realistic rendering applications of the wavelet transform. In this work he also developed a framework for understanding matrix solution methods used for radiosity. As a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Microsoft Graphics group, he performed research in representing and rendering scenes from dense photographic data and performing efficient image-based rendering with layered depth images. Steven is now an Assistant Professor at Harvard University, where he has taught several courses in computer graphics, including a course devoted to image-based rendering.
