Hart is the daughter of mathematical sculptor George W. Hart, and was educated at Stony Brook University.[2] As well as producing mathematical videos, she has co-authored several research papers on computational geometry and the mathematics of paper folding.[5]

Vi Hart has previously been supported by Khan Academy making videos for the educational site as their "Resident Mathemusician" and currently works in a research group called eleVR creating virtual reality videos.[1][6] She has also collaborated on educational computer games.[7][8]
