Ondřej Karlík

Founding Partner, Main Developer

Ondřej was always fascinated with creating photorealistic images. He started doing computer graphics around 2005, but later, after enrolling at Czech Technical University in Prague, he switched his focus to programming. Then finally, in 2009, he combined both his interests when he started the development of Corona Renderer.

He developed Corona as part of both his Bachelor and Master thesis. After graduating in 2011, he met Jaroslav Křivánek, and started Ph.D. at Charles University in Prague under his supervision, focusing on efficiency and usability of rendering. In 2014, he suspended his studies to focus on Corona Renderer full-time.
