I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Duke Eye Center in the department of ophthalmology. I am working in the lab of Prof. Sina Farsiu on various medical imaging problems, including artery-vein classification, vessel layer identification, vessel segmentation and diabetic macular edema classification.
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 recently completed my Ph.D. in computer science at Duke University. My advisor was Prof. Carlo Tomasi. I also obtained a M.S. in biomedical engineering and a graduate certificate in cognitive neuroscience from Duke. As a graduate student, I completed a summer research internship at Teledyne Scientific & Imaging at Research Triangle Park, NC. 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 various topics related to artificial intelligence, including computer vision, machine learning, statistical computing, Bayesian analysis, graph theory, and computational complexity. I have applied my expertise to a number of medical imaging applications, including tree topology estimation, 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 research, I also taught COMPSCI 4 at Duke, an introductory programming class using Java and I was involved in leadership positions at the Duke Graduate & Professional Student Council and the Duke International House. Currently, I tutor in science and math for Dance with the Pen, a K-12 tutoring company.
