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.

Bioengineering Profile
My Publications


My education has included degrees in Physics (B.Sc.), Electrical Engineering (M.Sc.) and Physiology (Ph.D.) from far away places like Halifax, Nova Scotia and Graz Austria. I came to Utah in 1990 as a post-doc, met Chris, and we have been causing trouble ever since.

Current Responsibilities

I am an associate director of the CVRTI and have a research group there focussing on cardiac electrophysiology, the study of the heart's electrical activity. Within the SCI Institute, I am a member of the executive committee responsible for the biomedical research projects, especially the NIH NCRR Center. I also teach physiology and about bioelectric fields in Bioengineering, where I head the computational track in both the graduate and undergraduate programs.
