Associate Professor Mani Golparvar-Fard has won the 2016 Hojjat Adeli Award for Innovation in Computing for his journal paper, co-authored with graduate students Andrey Dimitrov and Rongqi Gu, published at Wiley Journal of Computer-Aided Civil and Infrastructure Engineering, titled “Non Uniform B-Spline Surface Fitting from Unordered 3D Point Clouds for As-Built Modeling.”
The Hojjat Adeli Award for Innovation in Computing was established by Wiley-Blackwell in 2010 and is awarded annually to “the most innovative paper published in the previous volume/year or the most innovative single author, normally someone who has published more than one paper in the previous three years.”
Golparvar-Fard earned his B.Sc. and first M.Sc. in civil engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology in 2002. He earned his M.A.Sc. in civil engineering from the University of British Columbia in 2006, and his M.S. in computer science and Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010. He joined the faculty of CEE at Illinois in 2012, and in 2015 became one of the first Engineering at Illinois Faculty Entrepreneurial Fellows.
