Jamie Snape

Staff R&D Engineer

Jamie Snape joined Kitware in February 2013. He has received an M.Math. degree with honors in mathematics from Collingwood College, University of Durham, an M.Sc. degree in computer science from Worcester College, University of Oxford, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dr. Snape was previously a systems developer with Millennium Global Investments in London, a teaching assistant and co-instructor with the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a research assistant with the Geometric Algorithms for Modeling, Motion, and Animation (GAMMA) research group at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

His research interests have included motion and path planning, multi-agent and multi-robot systems, mobile robotics, and video game engines. He is the co-author of software libraries licensed by several major commercial video game publishers.
