|About Us: Who We
||University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia,
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
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.
Dr. Kaye's awards and honors include
- First Prize
in Student Paper Competition, American Medical Informatics
of the 1997 Morris and Dorothy Rubinoff Award for best dissertation
in Computer Science at the University of Pennsylvania for
applied computer technology.
