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.

Cameron graduated in 1999 with a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Utah. Since then he has developed software for use in drafting and design, video compression, product photography, entertainment and advertising.

He joined the SCI Institute in 2010 and has participated in collaborations involving neuroscience, astronomy, global climate study, geosciences, energy research and teaching. He has developed tools to process, assemble, visualize, and annotatate massive microscopy datasets. He has also supported tools for visualization of massive simulation data created by scientists studying clean energy technology.

Cameron is a certified yoga instructor and founded Yoga@SCI after work yoga classes at the SCI Institute.

Current Responsibilities

Cameron is currently part of the research group led by Valerio Pascucci. He contributes to the devlopment of the ViSUS Streaming Visualization Framework, including work to process and visualize hierarchical multiresolution data, and integration of ViSUS with applications in climate data analysis, combustion simulation, microscopy and education.
