Demonstrated adaptability and capacity to communicate technical knowledge in a high stress environment. Provided technical guidance to surgeons including spiral and comminuted,...more periprosthetic, high impact, and open fractures. Implemented knowledge of biomaterial interaction, vasculature, and nerve bundle anatomy.
Bio-photonics Research Engineer
2010 - 2011 (about 1 year)
Gained experience in neuro-electrical signal transfer, optics, image processing, and bio-photonics. Used laser arrays to act as an optical coherence tomography system dedicated...more to recording the biology of the optic nerve in horseshoe crabs. Combined the optics system with fluorescence microscopy to visually observe the passing of an electrical load through the nerve and collect electrical output wave amplitude and phase change.
I built a self-driving RC car that stops at stop signs, avoids obstacles, and stays in-between lanes. This project was completed in 7 days, with zero prior knowledge of any of the languages or frameworks that were required. Our team of 5 students trained a Haar cascade classifier using OpenCV to recognize stop signs, wrote a lane detection algorithm in Python using Numpy and MatPlotLib libraries, and utilized a TCP server, websockets, and multithreading to communicate asynchronously between hardware.
