Professor Dinesh Pai receives NSERC Idea to Innovation Grant

UBC Computer Science Professor Dinesh K. Pai has received an NSERC Idea to Innovation grant for developing realistic computer models of skin and skin-like materials, such as clothes.  Modeling skin is of central importance in computer animation and in many areas of human health. The objective of the project is to create a high performance software library that could be used to simulate realistic skin movement. The software builds upon a recent breakthrough in Pai's group in simulating skin-like materials moving in close contact with the body.
