Solving the mysteries of bioscience
We are an independent nonprofit bioscience research institute aimed at unlocking the mysteries of human biology through foundational science.
Foundational Science Fuels Breakthroughs
We are leaders in large-scale research that transforms our understanding of human health and disease and shapes how science is conducted worldwide.
Inspiring Next-Generation Scientists
To us, open science extends to inspiring the next generation of scientists by supporting access to science resources, research, and experiences.
I am a Senior Software Engineer specializing in graphics. I work on visualizing 3D imaging data – in particular, displaying volumetric images of cells. My current project is part of the Allen Cell Explorer, a web portal for browsing thousands of individual cell images.
My prior experience has been in various software industries from business tools for office furniture layout, to cinematic animation production, to web marketing and mobile devices. In all cases I was most interested and involved in providing interesting and interactive 3D imagery to end users.
I received my Bachelors in Physics from Johns Hopkins University and a Masters from the University of Oregon, with some research on experimental particle physics and some on laser optics.
My research interests are in high quality rendering on GPU: maximizing the use of all computing resources available to create the best images possible in the shortest time.
