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.

My Homepage


I was accepted into the bioengineering Ph.D program at the University of Utah in Fall 2008. Prior to my acceptance I had received a B.S. in bioengineering from the U as well as associate degrees in electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering from the College of Southern Idaho in 2005.

Current Responsibilities

I study electrical models of partial thickness ishcemia with the heart.  Under the direction of Dr. Rob Macleod, I build models that represent the electrical effects of reduced blood flow to regions of the heart.  My responsibilities include: geometry segmentation, meshing, data mapping, computer simulation, and data analysis.  Major areas of research include: subject-specific modeling, source identification & parameterization, and uncertainty analysis.

Research Interests

  • Cardiac Modeling and Physiology
  • Bioelectric Signal Analysis
  • Cardiac Disease: Detection and Treatment
