Julien Jomier


Julien Jomier is currently directing Kitware's European subsidiary in Lyon, France (Kitware SAS), where he focuses on European business development.

In 2005, Julien Jomier and Stephen Aylward started Kitware's branch office in Carrboro, North Carolina, where Julien led the MIDAS project, a system for collecting, processing, and distributing massive collections of data. He is also the main architect of CDash, an open-source, distributed, software quality system companion of CMake and CTest. Julien is also leading the development of the MIDAS Journal and Insight Journal, an electronic journal promoting open-science.

Julien received both his B.S. and M.S in Electrical Engineering and Information Processing in 2002 from the ESCPE-Lyon (France) and an M.S. in Computer Science from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) in 2003. He worked on a variety of projects in the areas of parallel and distributed computing, mobile computing, image processing, and visualization.

As a developer of the Insight Toolkit (ITK), Mr. Jomier was involved in applications for stereo reconstruction, model-to-image registration, and vessel analysis. He is also the main contributor of the Spatial Objects and the Spatial Object Viewer toolkit. His main areas of research include image-guided surgery and multimodality data fusion as well as computer-aided diagnosis. He is also a main developer for the Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit (IGSTK) and continues to support the Insight toolkit.

Prior to joining Kitware, Mr. Jomier was a Faculty Research Lecturer of Radiology at the University of North Carolina and a member of the Computer-Aided Diagnosis and Display Laboratory.
