Ph.D., UC Berkeley, 1994

Professor Amenta works in computational geometry, using discrete geometry to develop algorithms for problems in areas like computer graphics and simulation. Her research has focused on the construction of good models of 3D objects from clouds of points, computational algorithms for geometric structures, and visualization for computational biology and ecology. She is the recipient of an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship and an NSF CAREER award, and she is a UC Davis Chancellor’s Fellow.
