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. Christopher Butson


I received my B.S. in neuroscience from Allegheny College in 2017. Since 2017 I have attended graduate school at the University of Utah, working on a project with Dr. Brittany Coats to create a biomechanical finite element model of the tissue-entry interface of the Utah Electrode Array. I am currently conducting a new project with Dr. Christopher Butson on the characterization of cortical electrode-tissue interfaces using electrical impedance microscopy in large mammals.

Current Responsibilities

  • Completing project in biomechanical finite element modeling of Utah Electrode Array
  • Starting a new study in characterization of the electrode-tissue interface of cortical electrodes in large mammals using impedance microscopy

Research Interests

  • Electrical, chemical and physical bio-compatibility of electrode-tissue interfaces
