Education: University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA
Ph.D. in Computer Science
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY
B.A. in Computer Science
Dr. Jonathan M. Kaye is a computer-programming expert with experience in developing software programs for biomedical visualization. Prior to his doctoral studies, Dr. Kaye worked at IBM for two years as an associate programmer in the Natural Language Programming Department. Dr. Kaye's subsequent experience includes assisting with the design and implementation of a decision-support tool for physicians managing penetrating trauma in the emergency room.

He was the principal programmer responsible for system development for this University of Pennsylvania project, as well a major contributor in resolving design issues. Before his full-time commitment to Amethyst, Dr. Kaye worked with the Veterans' Administration Hospital in Philadelphia as a Research Fellow, which enabled him to continue his development of the virtual environment, extending its breadth and depth.
