I am a PhD student in the Computer Science Department working in the labs of Scott Delp and Ron Fedkiw. In Simbios, my role is to design and implement algorithms to develop and enhance physics-based simulation software for the Neuromuscular Driving Biological Problem (DBP). In the past, I have worked on numerous problems involving simulation, geometry, and computer graphics, including simulation of cloud formation, subdivision algorithms for algebraic curves, segmentation of human tooth data, and fractal properties of smooth curves. I also collaborate with the National Alliance for Medical Image Computing (NA-MIC), a National Center for Biomedical Computing (NCBC) like Simbios, to develop features for the 3D Slicer, a free and open source software package for image processing. I hold degrees in Computer Science (BS) and Mathematics (BS) from the University of Texas at Austin.
