I was an academic scientist, in a previous life. Looking back, I think I am too much of a pragmatist to generate academic scholarship. My CV is full of technical projects, most of them involving imaging techniques. I’ve used microscopy techniques on cell lines, primary cells, animals, proteins, and tissue samples. Eventually, I wrote custom image analysis algorithms for measuring neural activity, cell mass, and statistical analysis of “image-like” data for large numbers of cells.
Now I am a clinical systems engineer at a hospital, managing medical device integration into an electronic records system and assessing and supporting novel surgical tools in an interventional, image-guide operating theater. This work suits me a bit more; my experience is now channeled into helping clinicians effect ever improving medical care on their patients.
In my spare time, I read, write, and make pictures. You will find more of my works on 500px.
