Research Interests

Adrien Treuille is a member of the Computer Graphics group. He was one of the creators of Foldit, the computer game where users contribute to science by folding proteins. He also studies the simulation and animation of very high-dimensional nonlinear phenomena like animal morphology, human motion, and large fluid systems. One thread of Dr. Treuille's research addresses the complexity of such systems by developing model reduction tools that generate compact representations. A complementary thread seeks to control such systems, which means learning to set inputs to produce desired effects. While Dr. Treuille seeks theoretical advances, he is also deeply interested in the implications for science and engineering of these techniques, from fluid dynamics to laying down a joint cognitive and biomechanical basis for animal motion. His interests also extend to computer graphics, numerical computation, model reduction, and scientific discovery games.
