Jacob Becker

Staff R&D Engineer

Jacob Becker received his B.S. in Computer Science and Archaeology from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse (UW-L) in May 2005. While at UW-L, he pursued original, self-directed research in developing tools to record and visualize contextual relationships within archaeological sites. Part of this work was funded by the UW-L College of Science and Allied Health Deans’ Distinguished Undergraduate Research Fellowship. After UW-L, Jacob went to graduate school at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) where he received a M.S. in Computer Science in August 2009. At RPI he researched aligning a 2D image to a 3D model and filling in holes in LiDAR data using evidence provided by a single aligned 2D image.

Jacob joined the Computer Vision Group at Kitware as an R&D Engineer in October 2009.
