Short bio for Henrik Wann Jensen

Dr. Henrik Wann Jensen is an assistant professor at UC San Diego where he is working in the computer graphics group on realistic image synthesis, global illumination, and appearance modeling. His contributions to computer graphics include the photon mapping algorithm for global illumination, and the first BSSRDF for simulating subsurface scattering in translucent materials. He is the author of "Realistic Image Synthesis using Photon Mapping", AK Peters 2001. Prior to coming to UCSD in 2002, he was a research associate at Stanford from 1999-2002, a postdoctoral researcher at MIT, and a research scientist in industry working on commercial rendering software. He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Technical University of Denmark for developing the photon mapping method.
