                                               Work Experience
Duke University Center for InVitro Microscopy, Durham NC, Lab Technician. 2002-03
Working on an independent project to image the mouse heart in real-time. Modern cameras are too slow to image
the mouse heart so my research involves building hardware and writing software to overcome this speed barrier.
Working on the paper: “Digital Subtraction Angiography for the Mouse at Microscopic Resolution.”
Baush and Lomb’s Optics Center, Rochester NY, Summer Intern. Summer 2001-02
Formulated and tested new contact lens solutions using newly developed cleaning agents. Worked heavily on the
ReNU02 project; the next generation in contact lens solution. Developed several new formulations presently
undergoing clinical trials. Patent pending: “Pluronic F127/P123 Synergy in Lipid Cleaning Efficacy.”
University of Rochester Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE), Rochester NY. Tech Assistant. 1998-2000
Built and characterized the Liquid Crystal Point-Diffraction Interferometer (LCPDI). The LCPDI is a small
device that uses wavefront aberrations in light waves to detect defects in optical lenses. NASA was very
interested in my project since the LCPDI could be used to detect defects in the Hubble space telescope without
sending a man into space. Published two papers and made a presentation/poster at a major optics meeting.
