    Aaron Lefohn is a senior graphics architect at Intel where he leads a research team creating new interactive rendering algorithms for current and future graphics architectures. Aaron previously led Intel’s involvement in OpenCL where he contributed significantly to OpenCL’s heterogeneous parallel coordination API. Before joining Intel, he designed parallel programming models for graphics as Principal Engineer at the graphics startup, Neoptica. Aaron’s Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California Davis predicted the transition to “Fully Programmable Graphics” and introduced new interactive rendering algorithms that use parallel algorithms to build complex dynamic data structures. Aaron also spent three years at Pixar working on interactive rendering tools for artists and GPU acceleration of RenderMan. Aaron was an NSF graduate fellow in computer science.
