Computational Bio-Modeling Lab's research includes Computational Geometry (especially mesh generation), Computer Graphics, Visualization, Finite Element Method, Isogeometric Analysis and their applications in Computational Biomedicine, Computational Biology and Engineering. We are mainly focusing on applications in biomedical fields, but we are also working on projects in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Architecture, Geological Engineering and Petroleum Engineering.
