Interests

Computer graphics and vision: geometric modeling, 3D deep learning, animation, shape analysis and synthesis, scene modeling, 3D reconstruction

Research

Evangelos Kalogerakis' research deals with the development of graphics+vision algorithms and techniques, empowered by AI/ML, to help people to easily create and process representations of the 3D visual world. He is particularly interested in algorithms that generate 3D models of objects, scenes, animations, and intelligently process 3D scans, geometric data, collections of shapes, images, and video. 

Biography

Evangelos Kalogerakis is currently an Associate Professor at the College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst), where he leads a group of students working on graphics+vision. He joined UMass Amherst in 2012. He was a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University from 2010 to 2012. He obtained his PhD from the University of Toronto in 2010. He has served as area chair in CVPR, and on technical paper committees for ACM SIGGRAPH, ACM SIGGRAPH ASIA, Eurographics, and Symposium on Geometry Processing. He currently serves as Associate Editor in the Editorial Boards of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI), IEEE Transactions on Visualization & Computer Graphics (TVCG), and Elsevier Computers & Graphics. He co-chaired the Shape Modeling International (SMI) conference in 2018.

Activities & Awards

Evangelos Kalogerakis' research is supported by NSF awards and donations from Adobe. He has co-authored more than 50 papers; most of them are published at top-tier computer science venues and journals, such as TOG, SIGGRAPH, SIGGRAPH ASIA, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, UIST, and TVCG.  He was listed as one of the 100 most cited computer graphics scholars in the world between 2009 and 2019, and received the "Most Influential Scholar Award Honorable Mention for outstanding and vibrant contributions to the field Computer Graphics" awarded by Tsinghua's AMiner academic network.  He received the NSERC Alexander Graham fellowship and the international EPFL Dimitris N. Chorafas award for his PhD work.
