Academic Profile
I am a research engineer in optical sensing for soft matter characterization and cell biology with over fifteen years of optics laboratory experience. My strategy is to merge optical technologies and algorithms from statistics and image processing into complete sensing systems. To do this, I work directly with biologists and chemists to identify the shortcomings in their measurement tools and design the solutions that effectively meet their needs. I benefit greatly from my multidisciplinary background, which has included topics such as fundamental optics, information theory and signal processing, software engineering, and materials science.
