Jacob Moore

Jacob Moore, Ph.D. is a senior R&D engineer on Kitware’s Medical Computing Team located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He helps develop applications for modeling and simulating surgical procedures, such as cardiovascular interventions, neurosurgery, and orthognathic surgery.

Prior to joining Kitware, Jacob was a staff scientist at Los Alamos National Labs. He worked on developing novel numerical methods for high order Lagrangian hydrodynamics simulations. 

Jacob received both his Ph.D. and bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Mississippi State University.
