Aashish Chaudhary

Aashish Chaudhary is an assistant director of business development for Kitware’s Data and Analytics Team and is located in Clifton Park, New York. He specializes in software R&D for data and scientific visualization and has contributed to many of Kitware’s open source tools and projects, including VTK, ParaView, UV-CDAT, and VES.

Aashish is focused on building sophisticated visualizations and analysis tools for information and geo-visualization. Additionally, he is interested in software frameworks, computer graphics, human-computer interactions (HCI), GPGPU computing, and visualization on mobile devices. He is one of the core developers of VES and UV-CDAT. VES is the VTK OpenGL ES Rendering Toolkit for mobile devices built on top of OpenGL ES and Visualization Toolkit (VTK) to deliver scientific and medical visualization capabilities to mobile application developers. The Ultrascale Visualization Climate Data Analysis Tools (UV-CDAT) integrated software product is a powerful and complete front-end to a rich set of visual-data exploration and analysis capabilities well suited for climate-data analysis problems.

He has led the development of new stereo visualizations and interactions for ParaView and has been awarded a Phase II project to further develop open source tools for researchers and non-researchers to understand long-term climate change projections.

Prior to joining Kitware, Aashish worked as a Research Scientist at Louisiana Immersive Technology Enterprise (LITE3D), University of Louisiana (UL), and Arizona State University (ASU), where he developed toolkits and applications related to information and geo-visualizations.

Aashish earned his master’s degree from Iowa State University in 2005. He has published papers in journals and conferences, and written numerous articles and blogs on visualization.
