- Marc Levoy is the VMware Founders Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Emeritus. He received a Bachelor's and Master's in Architecture from Cornell University in 1976 and 1978, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1989. In the 1970's Levoy worked on computer animation, developing a cartoon animation system that was used by Hanna-Barbera Productions to make The Flintstones, Scooby Doo, and other shows. In the 1980's Levoy worked on volume rendering, a technique for displaying three-dimensional functions such as computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) data. In the 1990's he worked on 3D laser scanning, culminating in the Digital Michelangelo Project, in which he and his students spent a year in Italy digitizing the statues of Michelangelo. In the 2000's he worked on computational photography and microscopy, including light field imaging as commercialized by Lytro and other companies. At Stanford he taught computer graphics and the science of art, and digital photography. Outside of academia, Levoy co-designed the Google book scanner, launched Google's Street View project, and currently leads a team in Google Research that has worked on Project Glass and the Nexus 6 HDR+ mode. Awards: Charles Goodwin Sands Medal for best undergraduate thesis (1976), National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator (1991), ACM SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award (1996), ACM Fellow (2007). In 2014, Levoy retired from Stanford to lead a team at Google. His team is in Google Research, and works broadly on cameras and photography. One of their projects was computational photography for Glass. More recent projects include HDR+ mode on the Nexus 6 and a more flexible application programming interface (API) and hardware abstraction layer (HAL) for the cameras on Android devices.
