Research Abstract
Dr. Meyer's research is focused on large-scale biomedical imaging, interactive rendering of biological and medical data sets (CT/MRI/confocal laser-scan microscopy/cryosections), and biomolecular visualization (DNA/RNA/protein folding). He is also interested in large-scale earthquake visualization (ground motion and structural response simulations), and other application fields in scientific visualization. His teaching includes Computer Graphics, Interactive Rendering Techniques for Biomedical Imaging and Virtual Reality.

Dr. Meyer has a joint appointment with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
