Melina Skouras joins Inria in December

After spending two wonderful years in our group as a Postdoctoral researcher, Melina Skouras is joining the IMAGINE team at Inria Grenoble as a tenured research scientist in December. Melina has helped many of us in various research projects with her knowledge and expertise. Congratulations to Melina on her next move in career!

Congratulations to Dr. Chen!

Our very own Desai Chen successfully defended his PhD thesis Multiscale Methods for Fabrication Design this afternoon. His thesis committee members are Professor Wojciech MatusikProfessor Justin Solomon, and Professor Markus J. Buehler. Congratulations to Dr. Chen, and wish him the best of luck for everything in the future!

One paper accepted at SIGGRAPH Asia 2017

Congratulations to Liang Shi on his newly accepted paper Near-eye Light Field Holographic Rendering with Spherical Waves for Wide Field of View Interactive 3D Computer Graphics at SIGGRAPH Asia this year! In this paper Liang and his colleagues at Nvidia present a light field-based CGH rendering pipeline allowing for reproduction of high-definition 3D scenes with continuous depth and support of intra-pupil view-dependent occlusion. Want to learn more? Please check out their project page and this cool video!

3D-printed self-folding electronics on MIT front page!

Subramanian Sundaram's recent work 3D-printed self-folding electronics was selected as Today's spotlight on MIT front page this morning! In this paper, Subra and his colleagues built a prototype self-folding printable device that includes electrical leads and a polymer “pixel” that changes from transparent to opaque when a voltage is applied to it. Check out this video to learn more about this tiny and cute self-folding robot!
