Andrew Wilson is an R&D engineer on Kitware’s Medical Computing Team located in Carrboro, North Carolina. He is the lead developer for iMSTK, Kitware’s open source interactive surgical simulation toolkit.

Andrew has developed and worked on numerous surgical simulators for both government and commercial customers. His simulators have included virtual endoscopic, lower mandibular osteotomy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, rotator cuff, and anesthesia nerve block trainers.

Prior to joining Kitware, Andrew worked at the computer graphics lab at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). He worked with a team of researchers from both UTD and UT Southwestern Medical Center in collaborative efforts to research neurodegenerative disorders with a specific interest in multiple sclerosis. He developed an open source medical processing platform based on Kitware’s VTK and ITK platforms which provides GUI for segmentation, registration, rendering/visualization, and analysis of medical data such as brain lesions and tumors.

Andrew received his bachelor’s degree in software engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas.
