(Chair) Distinguished Professor, Ph.D., 1986
Stanford University: Computational Geometry(Chancellor's/President's Award for Excellence in Teaching)
Joe Mitchell is one of the country’s leaders in computational geometry, which studies the design, analysis, and implementation of efficient algorithms to solve geometric problems. His particular interest is applications to problems in computer graphics, visualization, robotics, manufacturing, geographic information systems, and computer vision. A major current application is helping air traffic controllers route airplanes around bad weather.
