Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 2005

    Tony DeRose, Senior Scientist, Pixar Animation Studios. I’ve been on both sides of the academic/production fence. I started my career as a professor at the University of Washington, where I co-founded the graphics lab there in 1985 with Prof. Ken Sloan. After ten years on the faculty at UW I joined Pixar, where I’m now the lead of the research group. 

    SIGGRAPH 1999

    Tony DeRose is currently a member of the Tools Group at Pixar Animation Studios. He received a BS in Physics in 1981 from the University of California, Davis; in 1985 he received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berlu:ley. He received a Presidential Young Investigator award from the National Science Foundation in 1989. In 1995 he was selected as a finalist in the software category of the Discover Awards for Technical Innovation. From September 1986 to December 1995 Dr. DeRose was a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. From September 1991 to August 1992 he was on sabbatical leave at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center and at Apple Computer. He has served on various technical program committees including SIGGRAPH, and from 1988 through 1994 was an associate editor of  ACM Transactions on Graphics. His research has focused on mathematical methods for surface modeling, data fitting, and more recently, in the use of multiresolution techniques. Recent projects include object acquisition from laser range data and multiresolution/wavelet methods for high-performance computer graphics.
