I graduated from Utah with a Ph.D. in Computer Science under the guidance of professor William Thompson and professor Peter Shirley. My dissertation topic is on artistic rendering of natural environments.
My research interests are in visualization, non-photo realistic, as well as physically-based rendering, and the effects of computer graphics on human perception.
For the last couple of years I have been working as an R&D Engineer at ImageMovers Digital, a new film production studio in the Bay Area, founded by Disney and Robert Zemeckis. Our first movie, "A Christmas Carol" opens in theatres Nov 6th!
