    Paul Debevec received degrees in Math and Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1992 and completed a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of California at Berkeley in December 1996. For his thesis, he developed a method of modeling and rendering architec­tural scenes photorealistically from ordinary photographs by synthesizing techniques from computer vision with those of computer graphics. With Golan Levin, Debevec applied these techniques in an interactive exploration of the Rouen Cathedral and Monet’s paintings thereof in the 1996 work Rouen Revisited. More recently, Debevec wrote and produced The Campanile, a short film that plays with perspective by blending real video with photorealistic 3D renderings of the Berkeley hell tower and its surrounding environment. Both of these works were shown at the SIG-GRAPH computer graphics conference. In the future, Debevec will continue his efforts to capture, visualize, and interpret the world in creative and educational ways through novel photographic techniques.
