Spring 2010 GRASP Seminar – Cindy Grimm, Washington University, St. Louis “Manifolds for Surface and Data Representation”

April 2, 2010 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Abstract: The variety and ubiquity of data capture devices is changing the way we
do science. Not only are data sets increasing in complexity and size,
but increasingly they are also multi-modal – for example, a
diffusion-tensor image combined with a traditional MRI. In this talk I
will discuss a surface representation suitable for handling, and
computing with, multiple data streams, and discuss its application to a
problem of tracking a developing surface over time.

I received my undergraduate degrees from U.C. Berkeley in both Art and
Computer Science in 1990. I finished my PhD at Brown in 1996 in the area
of surface modeling under the direction of Dr. John Hughes. I then spent
three years as a post doc at Microsoft Research working on facial
animation, then returned to Brown for a second post doc. I joined the
faculty of Washington University in St. Louis in 2000, working in the
areas of art-based rendering and surface modeling. I received a CAREER
award in 2003. I was promoted to associate professor with tenure in
2007. My research interests are in perception, art-based modeling and
rendering, and biomedical surface reconstruction and comparison.
