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.

supervisor Dr. Benjamin Ellis


I received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University – Idaho. After graduation I worked in industry for a year before pursuing a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Utah

Current Responsibilities

Currently, I work on computational models of the lumbar spine, particularly studying the effects of varying degrees of laminectomies.

Research Interests

I am most interested in the use of Finite Element Analysis to better understand the mechanics of the musculoskeletal system of the human body, particularly that of the lumbar spine.
