Research at Alias|wavefront

My job here at Alias|wavefront is to do research in computer graphics. Preferably research which has a direct impact on any of our products. Inspiration for this research comes both from within the company (e.g., can you solve this problem for me) and from pure intellectual curiosity (e.g., what is wave theory all about and how does it relate to computer graphics).

I am interested in any area of computer graphics as long as it involves creating cool pictures/animations and doing fancy mathematics.

The research documented on this page is the fraction of material that is allowed to make it past the firewall.
