PhD Student Boris Dalstein Wins Alain Fournier PhD Dissertation Award

Computer Science Ph.D student Boris Dalstein is the recipient of the 2017 Alain Fournier Ph.D. Dissertation Award.  This is awarded for an exceptional computer graphics Ph.D. dissertation defended in a Canadian University in 2017.  His dissertation, entitled “Topological Modeling for Vector Graphics”, makes substantial contributions to the theory of vector graphics topology and introduces new data structures and algorithms for their representation and modeling.  Vector graphics is a core technology at the heart of creating and displaying many images, as it provides a resolution-independent image representation.  It is widely used in everyday tools such as Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, and Postscript. His UBC Ph.D. dissertation was supervised by Professor Michiel van de Panne.  

UBC students have won the award 7 times since it was established 13 years ago.  Congratulations Boris!
