Researcher Theodore Kim Thanks Academy Awards 

Theodore Kim, an assistant professor of computer science at UCSB's Media Arts and Technology program, picked up his Academy Award in Technical Achievement during a lavish ceremony at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel. Honored, with three collaborators, for the development of an advanced, now industry standard technique for smoke and fire effects, Kim is the first sitting UCSB faculty to win an Academy Award. His acceptance speech marked another milestone for the campus: getting a shout-out from the Oscar stage. Photo credit: Michael Yada / ©A.M.P.A.S.
