      Graduate Research Assistant – GPU-VSIPL Project                                         January 2010 – Present
           Maintaining the VSIPL test suite and GPU-VSIPL library by locating and fixing known bugs.
           Designed a linear least squares solver to be added to the GPU-VSIPL library and revised the pre-existing
             toeplitz matrix solver.

          Digital Signal Processing Intern                                                             Summers: 2009, 2010
               Worked with the Space and Geospatial Intelligence Business Unit: Advanced Technologies Division on a
                  research project to identify and geolocate small signals ordinarily hidden below the noise floor.
               Wrote a CUDA program to estimate the power spectral density of a signal. By running the program on an
                  NVIDIA graphics card, computational speed was increased by a few orders of magnitude.
               Designed speech processing algorithms used to classify signals of interest occurring within the HF band.
