Research Expertise: Computer Graphics | Computer Animation

In her work on computer animation and computer graphics, Alla researches novel ways to automatically synthesize natural and physically realistic motions of human characters and animals. Such methods are useful in entertainment, education, medical treatment, and training simulators. Alla uses vast amounts of data generated by motion capture cameras to create compact spaces of natural human motion that can then be efficiently searched for solutions that match user specifications. She is especially interested in developing character animation methods accessible to users with a wide range of user experience.
