John Hughes is interested in computer graphics, especially those aspects in which mathematics is critical. He is particularly interested in the modeling of shape and form at multiple scales, in human-computer interaction, and in art-based graphics. Prof. Hughes is also interested in the sketching component of animation—providing direct interfaces for the control of a wide range of animations, from two-dimensional (2D) presentation graphics to three-dimensional (3D) character animation.
Before coming to Brown, Professor Hughes was an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Bryn Mawr. At Brown, he was Tamarkin Assistant Professor of Mathematics for several years before migrating to Computer Science. He received his undergraduate degree in mathematics at Princeton, and his master's and Ph.D. in mathematics at U.C. Berkeley.
