The University of Tulsa welcomes guest lecturer Danielle Feinberg.
Danielle Feinberg began her career at Pixar Animation Studios in February 1997, and since then, has worked on 14 of Pixar’s feature films including A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo and WALL-E. She took on role of visual effects supervisor for Pixar’s latest release, Turning Red, the first woman in 20 years to take on that role at the company. A native of Boulder, Colorado, Feinberg’s love of combining computers and art began when she was eight years old, and first programmed a Logo turtle to create images. This eventually led her to a Bachelor of Arts in computer science from Harvard University. Now, in addition to her Pixar work, she works with teenage girls, encouraging them to pursue math and science by demonstrating to them the same beautiful simplicity she found with the programmed art of the Logo turtle.
Each year, The University of Tulsa’s Presidential Lecture Series hosts enlightening and captivating speakers who discuss a wide range of topics. TU’s Presidential Lecture Series is sponsored by the Darcy O’Brien Endowed Chair.
