Professor Julia Dorsey has studied a wide range of problems in computer graphics, including sketch-based interfaces for early conceptual design, acceleration methods for real-time rendering, and the creation of detailed photorealistic renderings. Her contributions also include algorithms for lighting and acoustical design and visualisation, and is particularly known for her research in modeling the appearance of materials. Dorsey’s current research interests include photorealistic image synthesis, material and texture models, illustration techniques, and interactive visualisation of complex scenes, with an application to urban environments.
