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.


Professor Holly Rushmeier has been elected as a member of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering. Congratulations!
