Valerio Pascucci


Valerio Pascucci joined the Center for Applied Scientific Computing as a computer scientist in May 2000. Since July 2005, he is also an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at UC Davis. Prior to his CASC tenure, he was a senior research associate at the University of Texas at Austin. Valerio's current research focuses on progressive multiresolution techniques in scientific visualization, topological analysis, geometric compression, computer graphics, computational geometry, geometric programming, and solid modeling.

Valerio is principal investigator (PI) or co-PI of the following projects:

  • VACET: Visualization and Analytics Center for Enabling Technologies (Scidac2).
  • NAPA: Novel Architecture and Progressive Algorithms (NGA).
  • A Topological Framework for Data Understanding and Combinatorial Information Exploration (LDRD)
  • ViSUS: Visualization Streams for Ultimate Scalability (LDRD).

He is also a member of the ASC VIEWS project.

Valerio earned a Ph.D. in computer science at Purdue University in May 2000, and he is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery, the American Mathematical Society, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the IEEE Computer Society, and the Upsilon Pi Epsilon academic honor society.

He also has a personal Web page that he maintains, which details some of his off-the-job activities and some of his publications in different areas.
