Olga Sorkine-Hornung is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at ETH Zurich, where she leads the Interactive Geometry Lab. Previously she was an Assistant Professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University (2008-2011). She earned her BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science and PhD in Computer Science from Tel Aviv University (2000, 2006). In 2006 she received the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship and spent two years at the Technical University of Berlin. Olga is interested in theoretical foundations and practical algorithms for digital content creation and geometry processing tasks, such as shape representation and editing, artistic modeling techniques, 3D reconstruction and parameterization, computer animation, computational fabrication and digital image manipulation. Olga received the Eurographics Young Researcher Award (2008), ACM SIGGRAPH Significant New Researcher Award (2011), ERC Starting Grant (2012), ETH Latsis Prize (2012), Intel Early Career Faculty Award (2013) and was named Eurographics Fellow in 2015.
