I am an electrical engineer with thirteen years of combined academic and professional experience including four years of postdoctoral research in the areas of wireless sensors, experimental radiology, RF design and simulation, and surface acoustic wave technology.
I lived in Germany for four years working as a post-doc at the Universitäts Klinikum Freiburg working on MRI coils for use with high intensity focused ultrasound ablation techniques. While at Albert-Ludwig Universität Freiburg I worked on disaster scenario technological advancements which might be employed in the rescue of buried or trapped people.
My time at the University of Central Florida in Orlando was spent trying to create novel wireless sensor technology for use by NASA. We employed surface acoustic waves as the sensor platform and created a passive system by which we could detect changes in the environment.
