Olga Sorkine-Hornung is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at ETH Zurich, where she leads the Interactive Geometry Lab and is currently the head of the Institute of Visual Computing. Prior to joining ETH she was an Assistant Professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University (2008-2011). She earned her BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science and PhD in Computer Science from Tel Aviv University (2000, 2006). Following her studies, she spent two years as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Technical University of Berlin. Olga is interested in theoretical foundations and practical algorithms for digital content creation tasks, such as shape representation and editing, modeling techniques, digital fabrication, computer animation and digital image manipulation. She also works on fundamental problems in geometry processing, including reconstruction, parameterization, filtering and compression of geometric data.
