BA, Mathematics with Highest Honors, Physics with High Honors, cum laude @
I love figuring out how things work, thinking critically about problems from many different angles, and communicating complex concepts to others in a way that resonates with them. After tutoring calculus and statistics in high school, I fell in love with teaching. I planned on pursuing a career in science education until I was introduced to hands-on
I love figuring out how things work, thinking critically about problems from many different angles, and communicating complex concepts to others in a way that resonates with them. After tutoring calculus and statistics in high school, I fell in love with teaching. I planned on pursuing a career in science education until I was introduced to hands-on research in my junior year of college. In research, three skills are absolutely critical: to quickly learn about new subjects; to determine what the right tools for the job are and how to use them; and then to convince other people why they should care about your results.
According to our upper management, I am an "effective communicator," in which I take significant pride. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of developing sensor systems with many moving parts, individuals on our team speak different vocabularies based on their own particular expertise. Translating these different languages to make sure our software developers, physicists, and engineers are all on the same page is one of the most satisfying parts of my job.
Associate Member Technical Staff @ My work has been focused in three general areas: 1) coordinating logistics for large-scale (>40 participants, >week-long) field experiments; 2) designing experiments in optics laboratories and performing statistical data analysis; and 3) supporting sensor system development for 3D terrain-mapping LiDAR (radar using lasers).
- Developed prototype airborne sensor systems, rapidly measuring distance to the ground to generate 3D terrain elevation maps
- Supported field experiments by working with GPS and GIS data, organizing logistics, generating coordinated scripts in Excel for participants, and analyzing the data collected.
- Received a letter from the Pentagon (Office of the Secretary of Defense, DDR&E) for "significant contributions" and "outstanding support" in making one field experiment (supporting enhancement of current sensor systems) an "unqualified success".
- Created data visualization tools in MATLAB to help a small team of analysts look at data from a number of different sources simultaneously.
- Developed an algorithm that determined suspicious activity in a sensor database (SQL).
- Streamlined the process of characterizing the performance of our in-house 3D cameras significantly (reducing the time it takes from two months down to two weeks, with better precision and documentation) and trained co-workers on the procedure.
- Developed a remote sensing concept using elements of laser spectroscopy and atomic physics to measure magnetic fields from a distance away, ensuring that magnetic fields from the sensor system itself don't contaminate the measurement.
- Debugged experimental systems with lasers, laboratory electronics, and custom data recorders based on few clues, a circuit schematic, source code for the software, and an oscilloscope/multimeter.
