Michelle Borkin works on creating new approaches to interdisciplinary scientific visualization and data exploration. She co-founded the "Astronomical Medicine" project at Harvard and collaborates with both astronomers and doctors to help them analyze and visualize their multidimensional data, and cross-fertilize visualization and analysis techniques across scientific disciplines. Most recently she has been collaborating with computational physicists, computer scientists, radiologists, and cardiologists to visualize the combination of simulation data with real medical imaging data to help diagnose and treat heart disease with novel non-invasive methods. Michelle graduated from Harvard College with a BA in Astronomy & Astrophysics and Physics in 2006, and is now an Applied Physics PhD candidate at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Michelle is a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellow, a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow, and was chosen by TED as a TEDGlobal 2009 Fellow.
