Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.

Current Responsibilities

Dr. McNutt’s research is concerned with supporting users in a way that supports and enhances their agency and ability to do meaningful work in general and with data. This involves the design of interactive visualization tools and platforms, domain specific languages, and theories of visualization; for instance supporting answering questions like what does it mean for a visualization to be "good”. Andrew's work traverses a variety of domains including data science, creative coding, and digital humanities.
