Sanjay Bakshi came to Pixar Animation Studios in April 2002 with an extensive background in computer graphics. His skills were first applied in the studio’s Tools department, where he worked on Academy Award®-winning films “Finding Nemo,” “The Incredibles,” and “Cars” as tools developer.

Bakshi previously worked as the groom lead on the Academy Award®-winning feature “Ratatouille,” in which, his role can be described as a digital hairdresser who is responsible for the hair on humans and the fur on rat characters. Bakshi’s role was to support the hair/fur technology and supervising the groom team. He most recently served as the Supervising Technical Director on “Monsters University,” and is currently holding the same role for Disney•Pixar’s upcoming feature “The Good Dinosaur,” set to release November 25, 2015.

A Saskatchewan, Canada native of Indian descent, Bakshi’s strong interest in computer graphics originated from when he used to program graphic algorithms on an Apple2. He received his Bachelor and Masters degrees in computer graphics at the University of Saskatchewan, and currently resides in Piedmont, CA.
