I am currently serving a joint appointment for the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory at the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University of Utah. As assistant director, my role at SCI includes technical manager for the NIH/NIGMS Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing (CIBC), where I help manage the development of open source tools for biomedical image-based modeling, biomedical simulation and estimation, and the visualization of biomedical data. I also work with image processing group at the SCI Institute to develop unique algorithms and tools for machine learning and image segmentation of image data.
