COMPUTER VISION RESEARCH EXPERIENCE:
2007 - present
VideoIQ, Inc., Bedford, MA
R&D Engineer
  • Developing computer vision algorithms.
  • Designing and implementing computer vision systems.

2006-2007
Boston Colledge, Chestnut Hill, MA.
Computer Science Department
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
  • Research involving eye tracking, saliency modeling, image compression, and object recognition.

1999-2006
UMASS Amhrest, Amherst, MA.
Department of Computer Science
Research Assistant.
  • Developed a system for semi-automatic segmentation of brain lesions from 3D MRI using deformable models and statistical techniques. The system is written in Java.

Department of Physiology, Biomedical Imaging Group
Research Engineer.
  • Designed and implemented a distributed system for 3D image deconvolution using MPI, for a cluster of workstations.
  • Designed and implemented software for computer-controlled microscope stage.

1997-1998
University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA.
Department of Physiology, Biomedical Imaging Group
Research Assistant.
  • Developed a method for tracking live cells in in video sequenses, using deformable models and fuzzy rules.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
Teaching Assistant.
  • Spring 2001. Artificial Intelligence. UMASS Amherst.
  • Spring 1997. Computer Graphics. WPI.
  • Spring 1997. Programming Language Concepts. WPI.
  • Summer 1996, 1997. Frontiers/Strive, a summer camp program at WPI for high-school students interested in science.

GENERAL SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE:
06/2000 - 09/2000
Connection Concepts, Inc., Farmington, CT
Software Engineering Consultant.
  • Worked in a small team to design and implement a client-server system for retrieval and presentation of railroad data. The client was implemented as an applet, which communicated with the server via a servlet. The server in turn communicated with a database residing on an AS/400. All layers of the system above the database were written in Java.
