Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 1999

    Dr. Victoria Interrante is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota. She received her PhD from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 1996, where her dissertation research, co-advised by Drs. Henry Fuchs and Stephen Pizer, focused on the  design or perceptually inspired artistic techniques for improving the comprehensibility of layered transparent surfaces. From 1996-1998 she was a staff scientist at ICASE, a non-profit research center operated by the Universities Space Research Association at NASA Langley, where she worked on developing perceptually based methods for effectively visualizing 3D flow. Her current research focuses on the application of  insights from visual perception, art and illustration to the design or more effective techniques for visualizing 3D data, in particular the study of shape and depth perception, shape-based feature extraction, and the  representation of 3D shape through texture. Dr. Interrante teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in visualization and computer graphics at the University of Minnesota, and has organized and lectured in tutorials on perceptual issues in graphics and visualization at SIGGRAPH 97 and 98, and IEEE Visualization ’96, ’97. and ’98.  

    SIGGRAPH 1998

    Victoria Interrante is a staff scientist at ICASE. a center of research in applied mathematics, numerical analysis and computer science operated by the Universities Space Research Association at the NASA Langley Research Center. She received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1996, where she completed a dissertation under the direction of Drs. Henry Fuchs and Stephen Pizer on the design of perceptually-inspired artistic techniques for improving the comprehensibility of layered transparent surfaces. Her current research focuses on the application of insights from perceptual psychophysics, art and illustration to the design of more effective techniques for visualizing data, the study of shape and depth perception, the development of automatic methods for intuitively conveying essential aspects of intrinsic shape via texture, shape-based feature extraction, and the representation of 3D flow using volume line integral convolution.  

    SIGGRAPH 1997

    Victoria Interrante is a staff scientist at the Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering (ICASE), a center of research in applied mathematics, numerical analysis, fluid dynamics  and computer science operated by the Universities Space Research Association at the NASA Langley Research Center. She received a PhD in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1996, where she completed a dissertation under the direction of Drs. Henry Fuchs and Stephen Pizer on the design of perceptually-inspired artistic techniques for improving the comprehensibility of layered transparent surfaces. Her current research focuses on the application of insights from perceptual psychophysics, art and illustration to the design of more effective techniques for visualizing data, the study of shape and depth perception, the use of texture to convey 3D shape and flow  information.
