Geometrika's staff are highly trained professionals. Two of the principals are professors at the Center for Graphics and Geometric Computing at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, who have also worked at Hebrew University, University of Utah, University of Washington, Harvard University and MIT at various points of their careers. They have also helped found startup companies in the field of computer graphics. Geometrika's engineers have graduate degrees in computer graphics and geometric modeling from the Technion.
Principals
 Craig Gotsman

Craig Gotsman is a professor in the Computer Science department  at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, working in 3D computer graphics, geometric modeling and computational geometry, and a co-founder of the Technion Center for Graphics and Geometric Computing (CGGC), which houses three faculty and dozens of graduate students.  Prof. Gotsman received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1991. During 2003-2005 Prof. Gotsman was a visiting professor at Harvard University and MIT.

Prof. Gotsman was a co-founder of Estimotion Inc. (now ITIS Israel Ltd.), a startup company which develops technology to generate real-time traffic information from large amounts of dynamic cellphone and GPS-based "floating vehicle" location data. Previously he co-founded Virtue 3D Inc., a startup company that commercialized his academic research on compression of 3D geometric data. Prof. Gotsman has also consulted for industry leaders such as Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Autodesk, Shell Oil and Nokia.

Prof. Gotsman has published over 100 papers in the professional literature and served on the Editorial Boards of ACM Transactions on Graphics, IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics and Computer-Aided Geometric Design. He is also a frequent member of the leading graphics and geometry conference program committees.
 
 
 Gershon Elber

Gershon Elber is a professor in the Computer Science department, Technion, Israel, and co-founder of its Center for Graphics and Geometric Computing (CGGC). His research interests span computer aided geometric design and computer graphics. Prof. Elber received a B.Sc. in computer engineering and an M.Sc. in computer science from the Technion in 1986 and 1987, respectively, and a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Utah, USA, in 1992.

Prof. Elber has consulted to the international computer graphics and geometric modeling industry for the last 15 years, including industry leaders such as Israel Aircraft Industries, Hewlett-Packard, Boeing, and Samsung. Prof. Elber co-founded GeomCore  - a company that specialized in compressed transmission of freeform geometry, Revolver3D - a company that handles 3D graphics in 2D Flash environments and Mosaic4u  - a company that creates stone-based, tangible mosaics from images.

Prof. Elber is a recognized expert in the area of geometric modeling and serves on the editorial board of leading international professional journals in the area as well as in many international conference program committees. He has published over 100 papers in international conferences and journals and is a co-author of  "Geometric Modeling with Splines - An Introduction".
