Jovan Popović

Adobe Fellow

Seattle

Jovan Popović joined Adobe in 2008 as an established researcher in computer animation. In his first year, he published five SIGGRAPH papers, one of the most visible computer-science journals. His publications helped establish fundamental technologies for analysis and synthesis of human motion including faces, bodies, and hands. Adobe Chracater Animator is, in part, a culmination Jovan’s research, and an embodiment of his research in tracking, animation, and simulation. Prior to Adobe, he was an Associate Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Today, he is recognized as an Adobe Fellow, our highest technical distinction. His research interests span the areas of graphics, vision, and learning.
