Inverse Kinematics for Reduced Deformable Models
This method allows direct and intuitive manipulation of highly detailed meshes at interactive rates. Deformations are expressed in terms of a reduced deformable model constructed automatically from example shapes.

Super-Helices for Predicting the Dynamics of Natural Hair
A deformable model for hair derived from the theory of elastic rods. Various hairstyles (from straight to curly and short to long) are animated and validated against experiments.
