Ian Stavness

I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Saskatchewan. My research involves biomedical computation, biomechanics, and computer graphics. I am actively involved in the OpenSim and Parametric Human projects, developing state-of-the-art human body simulations.

I was a post-doc at Stanford University with Scott Delp at the Simbios NIH Center for Biomedical Computation working on muscle modeling and whole-body biomechanics. I completed my PhD at UBC, Vancouver, Canada working with Sidney Fels. My thesis work involved computer simulation of head and neck biomechanics with ArtiSynth as part of the OPAL project. I also led a project developing a new 3D display technology called pCubee.
