Recent research in textures for rendering has led to some interesting problems that cross the boundaries between shape modeling, rendering and animation. I will discuss a few projects in this area. Inverse modeling of small scale geometric textures is part of a project in appearance modeling. Understanding how people expect to interact with shapes is part of a project on how to model texture and reflectance consistent with shape. Modeling 3D textures has led to a project in exploring new shapes for effective materials in storage batteries. Finally, designing and printing textures on shapes is related to a project in creating objects that carry encoded animations.


Holly Rushmeier is the John C. Malone Professor of Computer Science at Yale University. She previously held positions on the faculty at Georgia Tech, on the research staff of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, and on the research staff of the IBM TJ Watson Research Center. Her research interests include shape and appearance capture, applications of perception in computer graphics, modeling material appearance and developing computational tools for cultural heritage. She is a fellow of the Eurographics Association and of the ACM, and was the recipient of the 2013 ACM SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award.
