I like to stay busy. I'm currently employed as a research assistant in psychology and neuroscience. I have worked in an array of scientific disciplines from environmental science to applied math, biomedical physics, and developmental neuroscience. I've extensive experience programming in several languages (e.g. MATLAB, PHP, MySqL, python, etc.) I've very hard working and committed to the very highest standards of excellence.

Research Specialist

Nov 2009 - Aug 2011 (1 year)

Designed algorithms for detection and segmentation of cysts in OCT retinal images. Developed toolbox (beta) in MATLAB for retinal analysis. Responsible for distinguishing most efficient algorithmic processes given computing context. Responsible for meeting compliance with IRB and HIPPA protocols. Published in Transactions in Biomedical Engineering.

Research Analyst

Jun 2008 - Aug 2008 (2 months)

Worked on a project where the objective was to investigate, develop and validate efficient algorithms in C, C++, or MATLAB that could be used to generate optimal network topologies.

Research Analyst

May 2008 - Aug 2008 (3 months)

Worked on a project where the objective was to design an algorithm capable of working on upto 4 constellations that optimized each of the network's topologies as follows: maximize network connectivity, maximize network redundancy, minimize the primary paths between each of the satellites and the ground station in terms of latency, and minimize alternate paths between each of the satellites and the ground station in terms of latency.



2006 - 2010 (4 years)


Automated Segmentation of Intraretinal Cystoid Fluid in Optical Coherence Tomography

Presented a fully automated retinal cyst segmentation technique for OCT image stacks acquired from a commercial scanner so as to further investigate the link between the onset of diabetes and intraretinal cyst fluid development

Career Benchmarks from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund's Early Faculty Career Development Awards

Documenting the career characteristics of a highly selective group of researchers so as to provide insight into how a successful career begins.

Differential Regulation of Microtubule Severing by APC Underlies Distinct Patterns of Inter-...

Migration of interneurons, but not projection neurons depend on APC, which both differentially modulates microtubule severing in inter-, projection neurons and affects microtubule stability in interneurons via the p60 katanin enzyme.
