    Peter Kochevar is a principal software engineer in Digital Equipment Corporation’s External Research Program. He is presently at the San Diego Supercomputer Center leading the data visualization research efforts of the Sequoia 2000 Project. Sequoia, the successor to Project Athena, is a collaboration of Digital and several campuses of the University of California. The intent of this project is to bring together earth scientists and computer scientists in order to develop computing systems which will help in the understanding of global environmental change. Driven by the needs of earth scientists, the Sequoia visualization group is developing a next-generation visualization system that is faster, easier to use, and provides more insight to researchers than its predecessors. Peter received a PhD in Computer Science from Cornell University in 1989 where he was a member of the Program of Computer Graphics. Peter has previously helped conduct SIGGRAPH tutorials on introductory computer graphics and on advanced rendering techniques.
