Yotam Gingold is an Assistant Professor in the computer science department at George Mason University. He runs the Creativity and Graphics Lab (CraGL), whose mission is to solve challenging visual, geometry, and design problems and pursue foundational research into human creativity. Gingold’s recent research has yielded improved solutions for complex character modeling using mesh-based processes. This helps designers rig and “skin” animated characters, as well as program movements concurrently.
Gingold’s work is supported by the National Science Foundation and Google. He was a post-doctoral researcher in the computer science departments of Columbia University, Rutgers University, Tel-Aviv University, and Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center. Gingold earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from New York University in 2009, where he was awarded the Janet Fabri Prize for most outstanding dissertation.
