Jessica Hodgins is an Associate Professor in Computer Science and Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University. From 1992-2000 she was on the faculty of the College of Computing and the Graphics, Visualization and Usability Center at Georgia Tech. She received an NSF Young Investigator Award, a Packard Fellowship and a Sloan Foundation Fellowship.
Today she is editor-in-chief of ACM Transactions on Graphics. Her research focuses on the coordination and control of dynamic physical systems, both natural and human-made, and explores techniques that allow robots and simulated humans to control their actions in complex and unpredictable environments. Ongoing projects include data-driven animation, simulation of human motion, adapting control systems to new dynamic models, animation interfaces for naive users, animation of passive objects, and measurements of human perception of animated motion.
