Vladimir Kim

Senior Research Scientist

Creative Intelligence Lab, Seattle

I work on geometry analysis algorithms at the intersection of graphics, vision, and machine learning, enabling novel interfaces for creative tasks. My recent research focuses on making it easier to understand, model, manipulate, and process geometric data such as models of 3D objects, interior environments, articulated characters, and fonts.
