Profile Summary

I earned BS and PhD degrees in applied mathematics from Stanford and UC-Berkeley, respectively, and held postdoctoral fellowships funded by the National Science and A v Humboldt foundations. My first move into industry was within General Electric's Corporate R&D center, followed by six years in GE Healthcare's Applied Science Lab. Interest in low-frequency thermoacoustic imaging prompted a move to academia. More recently I've pursued thermoacoustic range verification during particle therapy.

My PhD research in diffuse tomography was motivated by optical/NIR imaging, followed by cone beam reconstruction of x-ray CT data and motion correction for Propeller MRI during my eight years with GE. Although my degrees are in applied mathematics, I've obtained a basic understanding of the physics—and painstaking engineering—required to develop clinical systems.
