Tomoyuki Nishita is a Professor Emeritus of the University of Tokyo and Hiroshima Shudo University, Japan. And Director of Prometic CG Research(UEI Research). He was in Department of Economic Information of Hiroshima Shudo University since 2013, and was a Professor in the Department of Complexity Science and Engineering (also in the Department of Information Science) at University of Tokyo, Japan since 1998. He taught at Fukuyama University from 1979 to 1998 He was an associate researcher in the Engineering Computer Graphics Laboratory at Brigham Young University from 1988 to 1989. His research interests center in computer graphics including lighting/shading models (radiosity), natural phenomena, real-time rendering, geometric modeling, and non-photorealistic rendering. Nishita received his BE, ME and Ph.D in Engineering in 1971, 1973, and 1985, respectively, from Hiroshima University.

Dr. Nishita received Research Award on Computer Graphics from Information Processing Society of Japan in 1987, and also received Steaven A. Coons award from SIGGRAPH in 2005. Currently he recieved a Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon, an honor conferred by the Japanese government. He has written 22 SIGGRAPH papers. He is one of the pioneers of Radiosity Method. He was a member of the Editorial board of the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics. He was a president of The Institute of Image Electronics Engineers of Japan in 2009. He has lectured at The University of Tokyo since 1994.
