We build mathematical models of the ear, to help us design better diagnostic tests and better middle-ear prostheses.


We develop software for creating 3-D models of complex natural structures.


See experimental measurements of how the eardrum moves;
admire an interactive 3-D teaching model of the ear;
watch a finite-element model responding to sound.
