Personal bio
Marc Levoy is the VMware Founders Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, with a joint appointment in the Department of Electrical Engineering. He received a Bachelor's and Master's in Architecture from Cornell University in 1976 and 1978, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1989. In the 1970's Levoy worked on computer animation, developing a cartoon animation system that was used by Hanna-Barbera Productions to make The Flintstones, Scooby Doo, and other shows. In the 1980's Levoy worked on volume rendering, a technique for displaying three-dimensional functions such as computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) data. In the 1990's he worked on 3D laser scanning, culminating in the Digital Michelangelo Project, in which he and his students spent a year in Italy digitizing the statues of Michelangelo. Outside of academia, Levoy co-designed the Google book scanner and launched Google's Street View project. His current interests include light fields. optical microscopy, and computational photography - meaning computational imaging techniques that extend the capabilities of digital photography. Awards: Charles Goodwin Sands Medal for best undergraduate thesis (1976), National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator (1991), ACM SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award (1996), ACM Fellow (2007).
