Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Large scale visualization on the Powerwall.
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.

I am from Saint George, Utah and have lived in the Salt Lake area for the last 3 years, working towards a degree in biomedical engineering. For the last year and a half I have worked as an intern at Bard Access Systems on the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering team, optimizing and qualifying processes for injection molded parts.

Current Responsibilities

  • Developing finite element models of pediatric craniocervical junction (CCJ).
    • Specifically looking at Kinematic response (range of motion etc.) of the pediatric CCJ.
  • Comparing the CCJ kinematics between the pediatric and adult CCJ.
  • Performing convergence studies ( changing mesh element type, number etc.)
  • Performing image segmentation of CT scans of the cervical spine

Research Interests

  • Mechanosensitivity of cells and tissues
  • Regenerative Medicine
