Dinesh Pai is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University. Previously, he was a Professor at the University of British Columbia and a fellow of the BC Advanced Systems Institute. He received his Ph.D. from Cornell University. His research spans the areas of graphics, robotics, and human-computer interaction. His current work is in Human Simulation and Multisensory Computation; the latter includes multisensory simulation (integrating graphics, haptics, and auditory displays) and multisensory modeling (based on measurement of shape, motion, reflectance, sounds, and contact forces). He is the author of over 85 refereed publications, including 25 journal papers and 4 SIGGRAPH papers. He has served on 6 editorial boards and on the program committees of all major conferences in Robotics and Graphics, and is a program chair for the 2004 Symposium on Computer Animation. He organized the SIGGRAPH2001 Panel "Newton's Nightmare: Reality meets Faux Physics," and co-taught the SIGGRAPH 2003 course on "Physics-Based Sound Synthesis for Graphics and Interactive Systems."
