Speaker Bio

Ken Museth is the manager and senior principle engineer of research and development in visual effects at DreamWorks Animation. He invented VDB, which is the enabling technology of OpenVDB, an open sourced library for efficient storage and simulation of VFX, which is setting a new standard in the movie industry. For this he was awarded a technical academy award in 2015. Prior to joining DreamWorks Animation in 2009 he worked on VFX in live action at Digital Domain for three years, was a full professor in computer graphics at Linkoping University for five years, and a senior research scientist at Caltech for five years. During the last period he also worked at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory on trajectory design for the "Genesis" space mission.
