Dynamic Hard-Soft Tissue Models for Orofacial Biomechanics

This work uses recent medical imaging segmentation and registration techniques combined with coupled hard-soft tissue simulation to create a first-of-its-kind model of jaw-tongue-hyoid biomechanics, for use in medical and speech research and for ultimately designing and planning medical treatments associated with this region.

Distance Visualization of Ultrascale Data With Explorable Images

This talk introduces a new approach to distance visualization of large-scale data anywhere, anytime, on any display device, enabling exploration in multi-dimensional space without re-rendering and access to the raw data.

Exploration of Bat-Wing Morphology Through A Strip Method and Visualization

A visual exploration tool that helps biologists navigate through complex bat-wing geometries by combining a novel modeling method and interactive visualizations. The work also contributes to a new method for wing-shape measurement during flight, which might be among the first to quantify in-flight dynamic kinematics.
