Dr. Uli Chi lives and works at the intersection of business, the academy, and the church. His professional interest is in the field of computer science and mathematics, and he is currently Founder and Chair of Computer Human Interaction, a software company that develops 3-D, virtual reality software that simplifies complex decision making for consumers and businesses. Uli holds a doctorate in computer science from the University of Washington. He is Vice Chair of the Board of the Max De Pree Center for Leadership at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, and Chair of the Executive Committee of the Center for Integrity in Business at Seattle Pacific University, and served as Board Chair of Regent College in Vancouver, BC.

A highlight of Uli's professional work in business was winning the international Franz Edelman Prize for innovative applied mathematics and computing in 1985 with his good friend, Dr. Mark Lembersky. The subject of their paper on “Decision Simulators” has shaped much of Uli's professional thinking and work ever since.
