Per H. Christensen

Welcome to the home page of Per H. Christensen!

I am a rendering software developer and researcher at Pixar in Seattle. Before joining Pixar, I worked for Mental Images in Berlin and Square USA in Honolulu. I received a Master's Degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby and a Ph.D. in computer graphics from the University of Washington in Seattle.

My research has mainly been in photorealistic rendering (ray tracing and global illumination). My hobbies and interests include vintage cars, snorkeling, scuba diving, drawing, comics, art, Lego bricks, history of science, genealogy, and chocolate. But click here to see my main interest.
