Associate Professor, School of Computer Science
Professor Craig Kaplan is interested in a broad range of interdisciplinary topics, with a particular focus on interactions between mathematics and art. He uses mathematical ideas to create tools and algorithms that generate ornamental patterns, or that empower artists and designers. His work frequently incorporates knowledge from computer graphics, classical and computational geometry, human-computer interaction, graph theory, symmetry and tiling theory, and perceptual psychology.
Professor Kaplan is an Associate Editor and past Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Mathematics and the Arts, and a member of the board of the Bridges Organization, which oversees the annual Bridges conference on mathematics and art.
