Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
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 received my B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Utah in 2002. I then received an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Arizona in 2004. I spent 6 years at the University of Oregon working in the area of High Performance Computing (HPC), specifically parallel performance tool instrumentation, measurement and analysis. Since 2010, I have been working at the University of Utah primarily on cardiac MRI image processing and shape analysis in the context of atrial fibrillation and other heart arrhythmias.

Current Responsibilities

I am currently involved in performing software development for the analysis of image and ablation data in the world wide, multi-center DECAAF 2 trial (

I am also a significant contributor to the ShapeWorks project ( and an involved in the development of 3D/4D cardiac shape models.

Research Interests

My research interests revolve primarily around medical image processing and shape analysis. This work comprises segmentation, registration, statistics and visualization.
