Fields of expertise
BiographyMark Pauly is a full professor at the School of Computer and Communication Sciences at EPFL. Prior to joining EPFL, he was assistant professor at the CS department of ETH Zurich since April 2005. From August 2003 to March 2005 he was a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University, where he also held a position as visiting assistant professor during the summer of 2005. He received his Ph.D. degree (with distinction) in 2003 from ETH Zurich and his M.S. degree (with highest honors) in 1999 from TU Kaiserslautern. His research interests include computer graphics and animation, shape modeling and analysis, geometry processing, architectural geometry, and digital fabrication. He received the ETH medal for outstanding dissertation, was awarded the Eurographics Young Researcher Award in 2006 and the Eurographics Outstanding Technical Contributions Award in 2016.
CURRENT WORKResearch at the EPFL Geometric Computing Laboratory focuses on efficient representations, scalable data structures, and robust algorithms for digital 3D models. Our goal is to understand fundamental principles of geometric computing and leverage these insights to develop new algorithms and tools for 3D shape analysis, simulation, design, and fabrication. Our research explores the interface of several scientific disciplines, such as mathematics, computer science, materials science, and architecture to facilitate innovative computational design solutions for advanced manufacturing and construction.
