The Parametric Human Project

The Parametric Human project is an academic and industrial research consortium in Digital Human Modeling headed by Autodesk Research and supported by and NSERC Collaborative Research and Development (CRD) grant. Research activities are directed towards high-resolution anatomical measurement and advanced biomechanical simulation. Partners include the Environment & Ergonomics group at Autodesk Research (Azam Khan), the ArtiSynth group at UBC (Sid Fels) and the Musculoskeletal Anatomy Lab at UToronto (Anne Agur). I am actively involved in the project developing state-of-the-art human models and simulations.
