Dr. Kelvin Sung received his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992. His background is in computer graphics, hardware and machine architecture. He came to UW Bothell from Alias|Wavefront in Toronto, where he played a key role in designing and implementing the Maya Renderer, a new generation image synthesis system. He also co-designed a patented motion blur algorithm. Images generated based on that algorithm can be found in movies including Independence Day and Wing Commander. Before joining Alias|Wavefront, Kelvin was an Assistant Professor with the School of Computing, National University of Singapore. Kelvin's research interests are in studying the role of technology in supporting human communication. Currently he is studying how different media delivered by technology can better support the presentation of ideas.
