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.

Current Responsibilities

As the SCI Institute's Chief Software Engineer, I am responsible for organizing and managing most of the SCI staff researchers and developers. I oversee schedules and tasks for the NCRR BioPSE and C-SAFE CS effort and coordinate with SCI staff scientists to ensure that their SCIRun project needs are met. I also lead the SCI documentation effort that includes maintaining User/Developer manuals for SCIRun/BioPSE as well as SCIRun/BioPSE tutorials, FAQs, etc. Once in a while I also get to spend a few minutes digging into complex C++ code.

Research Interests

  • Graphics
  • Distributed Interactive Simulation
  • Terrain Modeling
  • Massive Parallel Processing
  • Problem Solving Environments
