Associate Professor of Engineering and Computer Sciences Gabriel Taubin main research interests fall at the intersection of the following disciplines: Applied Computational Geometry, Computer Graphics, Geometric Modeling, 3D Photography, and Computer Vision. His main line of research has been for many years related to the development of efficient, simple, and mathematically sound algorithms to operate on 3D objects represented as polygonal meshes, with an emphasis on technologies to enable the use of 3D models for Web-based applications. More recent research initiatives are related to visual sensor networks, real-time distributed audio/visual signal processing algorithms, and applications.
I joined the Division of Engineering at Brown University in the Fall of 2003 after thirteen years at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, where I was a Research Staff Member. During my first five years at IBM Research I belonged to the Exploratory Computer Vision group. During the next five years I managed the Visual and Geometric Computing group. During the 2000-2001 academic year I was on sabbatical at the California Institute of Technology as Visiting Professor of Electrical Engineering. The following year, back at IBM, I was a member of the Visual Technologies department. Finally, in the Fall of 2002 I joined the Pervasive Computing Solutions group as a project leader, where I lead a team effort to design and build miniature smart cameras for real-time audio/visual signal processing applications.
