Who am I?
I am a double major in Electrical Engineering and Applied Mathematics at Walla Walla University. After graduating, I plan to attend graduate school to obtain a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering (Bioengineering) or Electrical Engineering. After graduate school my goal is to research and design medical equipment.
Potential Graduate Schools (alphabetical):
Primary Project (Senior Project): With guidance from Dr. Siewerdsen of Johns Hopkins University and advising from Dr. Aamodt of Walla Walla University, I plan to create an algorithm in Matlab which will segment and analyze 3D cone-beam CT images of the hand -- the overall goal is to be able to identify different joint diseases of the hand (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, etc.).
Secondary Project: I plan to repair/rebuild an Atari so that it will use up-to-date electronics (e.g. power supply, etc.). This is purely for the experience of working with electronics.
