Craig Gotsman is a professor of computer science at the Jacobs Cornell-Technion Institute at Cornell Tech in New York City, where he also served as the first and founding director of the Institute during 2012-2014.

Holding Technion's Hewlett-Packard Chair in Computer Engineering, Gotsman co-founded the Technion Center for Graphics and Geometric Computing and is active in research on 3D computer graphics, geometric modeling, animation and computational geometry.

Gotsman received his Ph.D. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1991. He has been a visiting professor at Harvard University, INRIA Sophia Antipolis (France) and ETH Zurich (Switzerland), and a research scientist at MIT.

In 2000, he co-founded Estimotion Inc., (now ITIS Israel Ltd.), a start-up that developed technology to generate real-time traffic information from cell phone and GPS-based location data. In 2014, he co-founded CatchEye to commercialize research done at ETH Zurich, improving the video chat experience using 3D depth camera technology. Gotsman has also consulted for numerous small and large companies, including Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Nokia, Shell Oil, Autodesk and Disney.
