Short Bio: 

I am passionate about illustrating the fascinating "Body Universes" of human anatomy and physiology with the help of the latest in computer technology. My research team uses 3D virtual reality and augmented reality environments together with computer game engines to build stunning immersive worlds inside and around the human body. One of our key projects is the LINDSAY Virtual Human (lindsayvirtualhuman.org), which we always like to show in action. We work on computational physiology, with aspirations for virtual drug testing and on innovative teaching and learning environments.
