    Ingo Wald holds a Ph.D. in engineering from Saarland University, and is currently a research scientist at Intel Labs. After his Ph.D., Dr. Wald was a post-doctoral research associate at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbrucken, Germany, followed by a Research Professorship at the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute (SCI)  and School of Computing at the University of Utah. His work concentrates on all aspects of real-time ray tracing and photorealistic rendering, high-performance graphics, throughput computing, parallel/high-performance hardware architectures, and, most recently, on programming paradigms and compilers for multi-core wide-SIMD  compute architectures. In addition to having authored a large number of ray tracing related papers and code bases Dr. Wald is also the  main author of the IVL SPMD Program Compiler for Intel Architectures as well as one of the leading contributors to the open-source Intel SPMD Program Compiler (ISPC) and upcoming Embree 2.0 ray tracing engines.
