Manual segmentation of CT data to remove surrounding rock from remains.

Exploring various methods of interacting with and excavating delicate paleontological remains in order to create highly detailed and accurate 3D models, while preserving the structural integrity of the original specimens.  This project was completed as part of my graduate research for the Biomedical Visualization program at UIC.  I worked with Dr. Paul Sereno and his team at the Fossil Lab at the University of Chicago.  I recently had the opportunity to present my research at the 2016 Society of Africanist Archaeology (SAfA) meetin in Toulouse, France. More information HERE and HERE.
