Jack M. Wang, Ph.D.
- Postdoctoral Research Fellow
- Gates Computer Science Building, Room 362
My interests center around automatic controller synthesis and computer models of human motion. In particular, I study how they can be used to improve our understanding of human motor control, as well as the quality of character animation in virtual environments. I'm also generally interested in visual applications of machine learning.
