Mark Hills is the head of the Systems Development team at Framestore, where he has worked since 2006.
His interest in large computing systems began as a teenager, when he found the components of 50 PCs in a skip and turned them into a working renderfarm — mounted in a recycled kitchen cupboard.
Mark holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Nottingham, with his thesis in face tracking.
Outside of developing software for computer graphics, Mark has a strong interest in audio DSP. In his free time he enjoys listening to music and mountain biking.
