Ming C. Lin

Ming C. Lin is an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC). She is also the co-director of the GAMMA Research Group at UNC. She received her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1988, 1991, and 1993 from the University of California at Berkeley. Prior to joining UNC, she was a program manager of discrete mathematics and computer science in the Mathematical and Computer Sciences Division of the U.S. Army Research Office, and an assistant professor in the Computer Science departments at the Naval Postgraduate School and North Carolina A&T State University.

Her research interests include robotics, haptics, computer graphics, virtual environments, geometric computing, physically based modeling, and distributed interactive simulation. She has served as a program committee member for many leading conferences on virtual reality, computer graphics, and computational geometry. Dr. Lin was the general chair of the First ACM Workshop on Applied Computational Geometry, the co-chair of the 1999 ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Solid Modeling, and the program co-chair of ACM SIGGRAPH/Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation 2003.

She is a guest editor of a special issue of the IEEE Computer Graphics & Application on Haptic Rendering, International Journal on Computational Geometry and Applications, category editor of the ACM Computing Review in Computer Graphics, and the editor of the monograph "Applied Computation Geometry: Toward Geometric Engineering," Dr. Lin received the National Science Foundation Career Award in 1995, Honda Research Initiation Award in 1997, UNC-Chapel Hill/IBM Young Faculty Development Award in 1999, and the Hettleman Prize for Scholarly Achievements in 2002. She also received best paper awards at several conferences, including the 20th Army Science Conference, Eurographics 1999, Eurographics 2002, and ACM Symposium on Solid Modeling and Applications 2003.
