June – August 2012

Stanford Summer Research Program                                     

Hristov Lab, Department of Radiation Oncology, Stanford University (Stanford, CA)           

Project: Implementation and analysis of a reconstruction algorithm for generating 3D ultrasound images

Principal Investigator: Dimitre Hristov, PhD

Researched and implemented a reconstruction algorithm to generate three-dimensional images from two-dimensional ultrasound scans for potential use in an enhanced prostate cancer diagnostic tool; analyzed the reconstructed images to determine a quantitative model of the relationship between scan acquisition method and image spatial resolution.


 June – August 2011

NASA Curriculum Improvements Partnership Award for the Integration of Research (CIPAIR) Summer Research Program                                                                       

Nano Electronics and Computing Research Laboratory, San Francisco State University (San Francisco, CA)

Project: “Hands-on Teaching of Embedded Systems Design Using FPGA-Based tPad Development Kit”

Principal Investigator: Hamid Mahmoodi, PhD

 Researched methods of implementing logic design a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based development board; assisted in the development of tools for graduate students to better understand the mechanisms of FPGAs.
