Frederic Fol Leymarie, a professor of Computing, is the co-director and co-founder of the post-graduate program in Computer Games and Entertainment at Goldsmiths College. His current research interests incorporate ideas from computer vision, together with the physics of waves and shocks and their modeling in modern mathematics via singularity theory. Leymarie has initiated several “shape-based” projects mixing the arts, humanities, social sciences, and computing, including CyberCity and CyberMonument, digital sculpting (with the Mid-Ocean Studio), and digital archaeology (at Brown University). Since 2009, he has co-directed the Aikon project with the artist Patrick Tresset.
