Vladimir (Vova) Kim

Senior Research Scientist

Seattle

I work on geometry analysis algorithms at the intersection of graphics, vision, and machine learning, enabling novel interfaces for creative tasks. My recent focus is on novel neural representations for geometric data with applications to interactive modeling, scene understanding, font design, and character animation.
