Szymon Rusinkiewicz is the David M. Siegel '83 Professor and current Vice Chair of the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University. His work focuses on the interface between computation and the visual and tangible world: acquisition, representation, analysis, and fabrication of 3D shape, motion, surface appearance, and scattering. He investigates methods for computational fabrication; 3D scan acquisition, registration, and reconstruction; learning for low-level image and shape analysis; robotic localization and planning; and appearance capture and representation. Applications of this work include documentation of cultural heritage artifacts and sites, appearance and performance capture for digital humans, and illustrative depiction through line drawings and non-photorealistic shading models.
