David H. Laidlaw Professor of Computer Science [ Inactive ]

Professor Laidlaw became interested in application-directed graphics research as an undergraduate in computer science at Brown; there is something he finds immediately gratifying about creating pictures, particularly when they are related to a real-world application. Science offers endless questions that may eventually be understood through visualization and computational modeling. After receiving his master's degree in computer science, also at Brown, he worked for three years in industry, where he was one of the developers of the visualization software system AVS. He then returned to academia to get a PhD in computer science at Caltech, where he subsequently spent two years as a postdoc in the biology division.
