Jessica Hodgins

Associate Professor,
College of Computing

Jessica Hodgins is an Associate Professor in the College of Computing. She received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in 1989 and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Leg Lab at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center. Her graduate research involved programming a two-legged laboratory robot to run, accurately place its foot to avoid obstacles, climb stairs and perform gymnastic maneuvers. Her research focuses on the coordination and control of dynamic physical systems, both natural and human-made and explores techniques that may someday allow robots and animated creatures to plan and control their actions in complex and unpredictable environments. Her current research focuses on generating motion for computer animation by using control algorithms in combination with physically realistic simulation. Her recent research funding is from the National Science Foundation and Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratory. She was awarded an NSF Young Investigator Award and the Packard Foundation Fellowship in Science and Engineering in 1994, and a Sloan Foundation Fellowship in 1995.
