Seth earned his PhD from the University of Minnesota in 2012 where he worked with Gary W. Meyer in the disciplines of computer graphics and visualization. He also holds a B.A. in Music from the Jordan College of Fine Arts at Butler University in Indianapolis. He is a classically trained tenor.

Research Interests

Seth is interested in using the visual power of graphics and visualization to bridge the pure technical disciplines of math and computer science with design and the arts. He has interests in design disciplines ranging from architecture to fashion and game design and seeks to develop new tools that enable the creative processes in these fields. He is also interested in advancing the primitive world of music visualization through the disciplines of formal music theory and form and analysis.

In computer science he is most interested in image based rendering and light field acquisition, real-time photo-realistic rendering with graphics hardware and high-level shading languages, and pedagogy and curriculum design for introductory computer science courses.
