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.

I did my Bachelor of Science in Materials Science & Engineering with dual emphases in biomaterials and nanotechnology at The Johns Hopkins University. At Hopkins, I won the Provost Undergraduate Research Award (PURA), the senior design presentation award, the senior design award, was invited to the Hopkins Technology Symposium and was a finalist in the Space Vision business plan competition. I am currently a pre-PhD candidate in the Electrical & Computer Engineering program at the University of Utah and am heading a project to help the international scientific community named Faraday Finder.

Current Responsibilities

I am involved in the design of experiments for creating aligned collagen scaffolds for tissue engineering and multi-scale modeling validation applications.

Research Interests

At Hopkins, I studied the neuronal differentiation of human embryonic stem cell-derived neural crest stem cells by pulsed electric field under Dr. Hai-quan Mao. I also worked on creating nanobeacon self assembled molecular beacon surfactants in Dr. Honggang Cui's laboratory. In my graduate research, I was involved in the computational modeling of the magnetic stimulation of rat sciatic nerve under Dr. Gianluca Lazzi.
