Corey Wetterer-Nelson, Ph.D.
Senior R&D Engineer
Corey Wetterer-Nelson, Ph.D., is a senior R&D engineer who works remotely on Kitware’s Scientific Computing Team. He contributes to our scientific visualization efforts, including designing and developing end-user tools for data analysis and visualization. He also helps maintain and expand our visualization toolkits and applications, such as the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) and ParaView.
Corey received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) in 2021. In 2017, he also received his master’s degree in mechanical engineering from CU. Corey received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Portland in 2015.

Get to Know Corey
What made you want to become a Kitwarean? I used several Kitware tools throughout my Ph.D. work, especially ParaView and CMake. I love the open source model, and I’m excited to contribute!
What do you love most about what you do? I went into engineering because I love building tools to solve problems. I find it most exciting when those tools can be used across many disciplines.
Share something interesting about yourself that is not on your resume. I am a photographer and a woodworker. I love taking portraits and landscapes, and I’m so lucky to have a beautiful wife to take photos of and to live in Colorado, where there are incredible landscapes to capture!
