We are a computer graphics group based in Yale’s Computer Science Department. At Yale we are immersed in a unique environment with world-class faculties in the visual arts and sciences, including Art, Architecture, Art History, Drama, Psychology and Medicine. We have access to rich resources in the collections of the university’s libraries and museums. The Yale campus itself and the surrounding Connecticut Shoreline provide us with visual inspiration and challenges.


Congratulations to Alvin Shi, Haomiao Wu, and Jarred Parr, who along with Prof. Theodore Kim and collaborator Prof. A.M. Darke (UC Santa Cruz) won the best paper award at SCA 2023 for their paper:

Lifted Curls: A Model for Tightly Coiled Hair Simulation

Citation: This paper presents a drastically more stable hyper elastic energy model for simulating tightly coiled hair with impressive visual results. It enables the simulation of a new hair style with deep mathematical insights and unprecedented numerical stability.

Graphics group research will be presented at SGP, SCA and SIGGRAPH this summer (click to see details!!)

It was announced at the 2023 Eurographics Conference that Prof. Rushmeier was award the 2021 Eurographics Gold Medal for her "her outstanding contributions to computer graphics and for her role in promoting computer graphics research in Europe." The full citation is available here .
