I am a Ph.D candidate in computer science at Duke University. My advisor is Prof. Carlo Tomasi. I expect to complete my doctoral studies in December 2012. I will also obtain a M.S. in biomedical engineering and a graduate certificate in cognitive neuroscience at that date.
I am currently looking for full-time, research positions. You can find my curriculum vitae and resume here. Inquiries are welcome. Please email me if you have any questions.
I previously obtained a B.A. (summa cum laude) in English in May 2006 and a B.S. (magna cum laude) in computer science in May 2005, both from Louisiana State University, in Baton Rouge, LA.
My research interests focus on the mathematical aspects of artificial intelligence and cognition, such as machine learning, Bayesian analysis, and graph theory, particularly as they apply to the problem of vision. I specialize in computer vision and have had the fortune of applying my expertise to a number of medical imaging applications, including image mosaicing and retinal vessel segmentation. I am always happy to answer any questions about any of the projects listed here.
In addition to my doctoral research, I taught COMPSCI 4 at Duke, an introductory programming class using Java. I also completed a research internship at Teledyne Scientific & Imaging at Research Triangle Park, NC. I have also been been involved in leadership positions at the Duke Graduate & Professional Student Council and the Duke International House.
