Matt Brown

Staff R&D Engineer

Dr. Matt Brown graduated summa cum laude from Rutgers University in 2006 with a B.S. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He received his M.S. and his Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University in 2007 and 2011, respectively. His doctoral dissertation, supervised by Professor Craig Arnold, explored a novel, laser-actuated printing process. This work involved time-resolved imaging experiments coupled with image processing and computational modeling of complex fluid-structure interactions.

After completing his Ph.D., Dr. Brown joined Logos Technologies, where he developed wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) sensor systems for civilian and military surveillance applications.  His contributions involved optimizing the design and calibration of complex optomechanical sensor systems as well as prototyping the associated control and image exploitation software.  Dr. Brown assumed the role of principal investigator in the development of real-time pose estimation, geolocation, and stabilized image rendering algorithms deployed in new payload systems.

Dr. Brown joined Kitware in December of 2016 as a research and development engineer on the computer vision team.
