The fields of computer graphics, image processing and computer vision are inherently intertwined. Solutions to problems in one field are often influenced by methods from another. In this talk I will present examples of the blurring boundaries between the 3 fields which I have encountered while solving problems in medical visualization and information visualization, and during the development of interactive graphics applications.
Tim McGraw is currently employed at the West Virginia University as Assistant Professor of the Department of Computer Science & Electrical Engineering. He received his Ph.D. (2005) and M.S. (2002) from the University of Florida (2005), Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering; and his B.S., also from the University of Florida (1992), Department of Mechanical Engineering. McGraw's research interests include medical image processing, computer vision, scientific visualization, information visualization, and computer graphics.
