Thomas Lau is designing and applying novel computer science algorithms to increase the accuracy and performance of existing computational models of simulation. Specifically, this project will focus on increasing the performance of existing simulation modules in OpenSim, an open-source simulation platform that lets users develop models of musculoskeletal structures and create dynamic simulations of movement.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 26, 2015:
