Dr. Mridul Aanjaneya is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Prior to joining UW Madison, he obtained his Ph. D. in Computer Science from Stanford University. While at Stanford, he also worked as a consultant in the Spatial Technologies team at the Nokia Research Center for two years. Mridul's research lies at the intersection of Computer Graphics, Scientific Computation, Biomechanics and Applied Mathematics. More specifically, he is interested in the design of models, computational techniques and robust numerical algorithms that can facilitate high-level tasks such as anatomically accurate virtual surgery simulations, computational imaging, or autonomous navigation in complex external environments.
