Chet Nieter

Staff R&D Engineer

Chet Nieter joined Kitware in Febuary 2016 as an R&D Engineer. Chet earned his B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from the Ohio State University in 1995. He earned his Ph.D in Physics from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2000. Chet worked as a Research Associate at the Center for Integrated Plasma Studies at the University of Colorado from 2001 to 2003 where he conducted research in computational plasma physics. He then took a position as a Research Scientist at Tech-X Corporation where he conducted research in computational accelerator physics. In 2014 he worked as a Software Engineer for BAE Systems, Inc. where he worked on video tracking software processing wide area motion imagery and full motion video. Chet’s professional interests include applying modern software methods to scientific and high-performance computing.
