He works closely with Faculty and the Advanced Technology Team to include and develop mathematical and physical models in his animations. Charles has a strong interest in the use of animation for hypothesis generation and is particularly interested in how procedural VFX tools can be used in describing and understanding modular and hierarchical systems biology (procedural biology).
