PROJECTS OF INTEREST

I attended this workshop, Computational Thinking through Computing and Music -- an interdisciplinary NSF TUES project, hosted by Jesse Heines and Gena Greher, University of Massachusetts Lowell, Lowell, Massachusetts, June 21-22, 2012.

University consultation - I consulted for the International University of Grand Bassam (IUGB). They are starting an American-style university in the Ivory Coast (Côte d'Ivoire).

Filopodia Measurement - This project was supported by a Brains and Behavior grant. I am working with Dr. Vincent Rehder of the Biology department. Our goal is to automatically measure the long, thin out-growths from neurons. This work is one of the reasons why I joined the Neuroscience Institute.

Yamacraw Embedded Software - This project was the world's largest embedded software group. See the Georgia Electronic Design Center (GEDC). We worked with professors from Georgia Tech, Southern Polytechnic State, and the University of Georgia.

Muon Detection PHENIX/RHIC - Project to detect the presence of muon particles generated from a collision of gold atoms. This was a joint project led by Dr. Xiaochun He of the Physics department, and included Dr. G.T. Chen from the Mathematics and Statistics department.

Robotic control via Brain Computer Interface - This project involved making coffee with a robotic arm, controlled by brain signals. Janki Vora wrote her thesis on this research. The work was carried out in Dr. Melody Moore's lab, a member of the Computer Information Systems department.

Discrete Wavelet Transforms - Master's of Science Project, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, performed 1-D and 2-D Discrete Wavelet Transforms on speech and image data, followed by compression.

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Control Chip - Worked on a layout with over 300,000 transistors. The chip controls four ATM switch chips to form a 16x16 switch. The layout was done using Opus LayoutPlus software (Cadence).

Land Mine Detection - Using wavelets, I wrote a program in the MATLAB environment to automatically detect the presence of land mines.

Internet Mining - Used HTML forms and a neural network written in C to guide an Internet user through a database of human images.

Chaotic Neural Networks - Studied a Neural Network with a non-sigmoidal response. This work could be used to show the effects of brain damage.

Rapid Prototyping - Simulated rapid prototyping system in order to determine things like cost, time, etc. This simulation was used with the rapid prototyping system at the University of Louisville.

Center for Hazards Research and Policy Development (CHRPD) - I worked on this project while still at the University of Louisville, with people from Civil Engineering as well as Computer Engineering.
