Computer science researchers help answer an age-old medical science question

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

Why do our veins look blue when blood is red? This is a seemingly elementary science trivia question, and certainly not one that computer science researchers would be expected to be interested in.

But Spencer Van Leeuwen, who recently completed his Master of Mathematics in Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, and his supervisor Gladimir Baranoski, who heads the Natural Phenomena Simulation Group in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, have recently shed light on exactly why veins look blue. Read the full story.
