ArtiSynth is a 3D biomechanical simulation platform, developed at UBC, directed toward modeling orofacial (OPAL) anatomy.

I am an active ArtiSynth developer working on advanced finite-element muscle modeling. During my PhD, I worked on three projects using ArtiSynth: a tracking-based controller for finite-element models, a model of coupled jaw-tongue-hyoid biomechanics, and a model of jaw biomechanics after surgical alteration.
