Home page | CV



Dr. Paul Rosen received his PhD from the Computer Science Department of Purdue University where his dissertation was about Camera Model Design, a problem-solving paradigm that advocates designing dynamic, application specific camera models for solving problems in computer graphics, visualization, and computer vision. While at Purdue, he was a key participant of the team, which modeled, simulated, and visualized the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center North Tower. The press release from the simulation resulted the most widely covered in Purdue University history, with the associated video appearing on many news and educational television programs. The video has been viewed almost 15 million times on YouTube. After Purdue, he joined the University of Utah as a Research Assistant Professor in the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute and the School of Computing. At the University of Utah, Dr. Rosen's research focused more towards scientific and information visualization approaches. Dr. Rosen joined the University of South Florida in August of 2015.
