My research interests include computer graphics, computational biomechanics, computational solid and fluid mechanics, numerical analysis and collision detection/contact modeling.

  • Animations of muscles constructed from the NIH visible human data set (with Eftychios Sifakis, Silvia Blemker, Victor Ng-Thow-Hing, Cynthia Lau and Ronald Fedkiw).

  • Robust finite element simulation, even for degenerate and inverted elements (with Geoffrey Irving and Ronald Fedkiw).

  • Tetrahedral mesh generation (with Neil Molino, Robert Bridson and Ronald Fedkiw).
