Berk Geveci

Senior Director of Scientific Computing

Dr. Geveci leads the scientific visualization and infomatics teams at Kitware Inc. He is one of the leading developers of the ParaView visualization application and the Visualization Toolkit (VTK). His research interests include large scale parallel computing, computational dynamics, finite elements and visualization algorithms. Dr. Geveci regularly publishes and teaches courses at conferences including IEEE Visualization and Supercomputing conferences.

Dr. Geveci received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Bogazici University in 1994, his M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University in 1996 and 1999, respectively. While at Lehigh University he conducted research on subsonic and supersonic flow induced nonlinear vibrations, developing a new procedure for the solution of coupled flow and structural equations. In addition, he authored software for the study of separation in unsteady boundary layer flows and the visualization of the numerical and experimental results. After graduating from Lehigh University, Dr. Geveci completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania during which he worked in the area of optimal control investigating applications in the control of hydrothermal instabilities.
