Provided student films are admissible, I have a Bacon number of 4. Also, due to my more successful academic career, I have an Erdős number of 3; I’m quite happy with the resulting Erdős-Bacon number of 7.
I received the B.S. degree (magna cum laude, with honors) in electrical engineering and the B.S. degree (cum laude) in physics from The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, in 2006, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Duke University, Durham, NC, in 2012. In 2010 I was a visiting researcher at The University of California, Merced, Merced, CA. Following graduate school, I was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI. I am now a Project Scientist in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA. My research interests include nonlinear optimization, machine learning, and signal and image processing with applications in medical imaging and fluorescent microscopy. I am also a member of IEEE, SIAM, and SPIE.
