Elasticity plays a fundamental role in many biomechanics and computer
graphics related problems. I will talk about numerical methods used
for simulating elastic phenomena in soft tissues, skeletal muscles as
well as techniques inspired by imaging for determining elastic
constitutive models. Specifically, I will discuss common difficulties
encountered and my recent algorithm developments to address them. I
will put specific emphasis on applications in computer graphics based

Practice is the single most important determinant of a surgeon’s skills. In an effort to significantly improve the trajectory of surgical training, virtual reality (VR) based systems (so-called “surgical simulators”) are being developed to select, train, credential, and retrain physicians, much like flight simulators are used today to train aviation pilots with great success.
