He has extensive experience successfully linking research to product development and commercialization.

In 1986, Myhrvolds company Dynamical Systems was acquired by Microsoft.

An avid nature and wildlife photographer, Dr. Myhrvolds work is featured in the books America 24/7 and Washington 24/7 where his photographs helped capture a week in the life of people and nature in the United States during the spring of 2003. His research has been published in scientific journals including Science, Nature, Paleobiology, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology and the Physical Review and he has contributed articles to magazines including Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Time, and National Geographic Traveler.
