Based on these experiences, I wanted to delve more deeply into 3D data visualization. In particular, I have sought to learn how to use Avizo, which allows much more advanced image processing than FIJI (the open source alternative). One big obstacle was cost: an Avizo license sells for $5000 -- with the education discount. I emailed Avizo and requested -- and received -- a free trial. When I looked online for video tutorials on how to use Avizo, I could only find one or two videos. During the trial, I made several tutorial videos of my own. I then asked Avizo to extend my trial for as long as I continue producing high-quality tutorials. They agreed and it has been a great partnership. I have now made 15 videos, which are hosted on my YouTube channel. Currently, my tutorials have over 3,500 views and 9,450 minutes watched.

I also played around with OpenDive, "free DIY 3D VR glasses by using your 3D printer, a non-commercial project by Stefan Welker" and was able to print out my own set on our school's Makerbot!

I plan to continue my data visualization work and since its announcement in May 2015, have been interested in learning more about working with Google's Jump!
