B.A. degree in Theoretical Mathematics from Harvard University. M.S. and PhD in Computer Science from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University. from the same institution. He developed or was involved with the development of techniques such as Perlin noise, real-time interactive character animation, and computer-user interfaces. He is best known for the development of Perlin noise and Simplex noise, both of which are algorithms for realistic-looking Gradient noise. “Received an Academy Award for the development of Perlin noise. He had introduced this technique with the goal to produce natural-appearing textures on computer-generated surfaces for motion picture visual effects, while working on the Walt Disney Productions’ 1982 feature film TRON for which he had developed a large part of the software.”
Research interests include graphics, animation, multimedia and science education, VR and AR.
