Graduated: Dec 2003 University of Wisconsin – Madison Overall GPA: 3.826 Professional courses/skills: Adaptive Signal Processing and Neural Networks Convex Optimization Spectral Audio, Mixed Digital and Analog Signal Processing Wavelets and Splines. Wireless, Digital and Analog Telecommunications Systems Modern and Classical Control Statistical Signal Processing, Time Series Analysis, Stochastic Processes Image and Video Compression Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, Measure Theory Analog Circuit Analysis and Laboratory Embedded Systems with Atmel processors Current Parallel learning algorithms for adaptive filtering Research Obtained results with strictly better convergence performance, increased stability and robustness than LMS with minimal increase in computational time with parallel data processing structure. Experience Research Assistant and Programmer, Stanford University School of Medicine Worked with vendor to extract proprietary device data from Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs). Written XSLT scripts to convert document- oriented XML to data-oriented XML. Developed C# and MATLAB GUIs for clinical access and transmission of HIPAA protected data. Learned Linux, CGI+Perl to reverse engineer the specifications from old source-code base in the process. Investigated available new software technologies and strategically re- designed and implemented the hardware/software system model to improve programming efficiency, security, manageability, and usability. Completely replaced functionally lacking and un-maintainable legacy Linux+Perl+CGI system by re-developing in MATLAB+Windows Terminal Services. Completed DCOM- based internet application development and deployed compiled MATLAB application through script automation. Designed nested data structure in MATLAB to minimize potential bugs, simplify programming tasks and balance between data size and computational efficiency. Developed sparse cell data structure through object-oriented programming in MATLAB to enhance capacity for large data sets. Configured and maintained Windows Terminal Server for web-based interactive data analysis. [Winter 2006 – Current] Research Assistant, Department of Anesthesia, Stanford University School of Medicine Strategically analyzed, acquired, and maintain data acquisition solutions for the laboratory. Carried out electronic, machine shop, computer system and software work to develop a fully functioning computerized DAQ and data analysis package. Developed graphical user interface for data acquisition in Igor. [Summer 2007] Bluetooth Software Development Intern, Broadcom Corporation Developed signal analysis model and plan for Bluetooth audio quality measurements with proprietary echo cancellation algorithm. Created objective performance metrics using mathematical techniques, implemented a fully automated audio quality measurement tool (signal generation, capture and analysis) by MATLAB, using UART to talk to the development board. Bridged the gap between embedded software development team and software testing & verification team (SVT). Gained understanding of the Bluetooth stack and protocol. Developed unit test scripting framework and example scripts for internal WIDCOMM Bluetooth testing program, and made changes to the script engine written in mixed C and C++. Interacted with the code base using ClearQuest. Prepared and delivered presentation to the SVT, the client of the testing package. Debugged firmware on ARM 7-TDMI development system. [Summer 2006] Imaging Intern, PortalPlayer Inc., San Jose, CA Developed, revised and verified image processing algorithms (AWB, AGC, AEC) for digital still camera. Implemented algorithms and controlled image sensors through programming ARM-based embedded system with C/C++. Analyzed algorithms and sensor behavior with C++ and MATLAB. Mathematical problem tracing of algorithm design. Set up a laboratory/studio for algorithm verification and testing. Prepared and performed technical presentations and documented the algorithm development process. [Summer 2005] Research Assistant and Project Leader, Biomedical Engineering Project with Prof. Gerald Popelka, Stanford University School of Medicine Developed a signal processing system (simulated baby ear) for automated testing of hearing diagnosis equipment. Devised and implemented algorithms on embedded DSP (TMS320) using C. Edited PC<->DSP interface code in Delphi. Collected and analyzed system response data for device development. Prototyped electronic interface for analog signals. Worked individually at the beginning and then managed a project team. Initial quick prototyping using MATLAB Data Acquisition Toolbox. Earned leadership experience, sharpened interpersonal, communication and organizational skills. [Fall 2004 – Spring 2005] Signal Processing Research Project with Prof. William Sethares, UW-Madison Developed and implemented an algorithm to estimate parameters governing real- life signal’s deviation from true periodicity. Discovered new mathematical relation that leads to faster estimation. Explained and solved problems of extending theoretical results to real-life signals. Application ranges from analyzing heartbeat signals to audio compression. Paper published to IEEE ICASSP.  Assistant, Electronics Shop, Department of Psychology, UW-Madison Repaired and assembled computers and electronic instruments for psychology research projects. Formulated and realized IT-solutions for the department. Reverse-engineered instrumentation circuit board. Machine shop experience. [Fall 2002 – Spring 2003] Summer Intern, Globe-IT, HK (an information technology firm). Performed deployment of IT-equipment, networking, thin-client for ASP and Terminal Server.
