Michael Steffen

I was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate from 2009-2010 in the Center for Integrative Biomedical Computing, an NIH NCRR funded center hosted at the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute. I received my Ph.D. in Computing with an emphasis on scientific computing from the School of Computing at the University of Utah. After working briefly with CREATE-AV, a DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program project focused on developing next generation CFD and simulation tools for air vehicles, I am now with Boeing Defense, Space, & Security in Seattle, WA.

My dissertation focus was on the numerical analysis and improvement of particle methods, including the Material Point Method (MPM). My work with CIBC was in the biomedical simulation sciences, including patient specific bioelectric field simulations and software development. I have a background in remote sensing and real-time processing of airborne hyperspectral imaging sensor data. My other reseach interests include scientific visualization and time-stepping methods.

A list of my publications can be found here.
