I am a research scientist in the lab of Eva Naumann. We are working with Roarke Horstmeyer in the Computational Optics Lab to develop a hardware and software platform for a multi-camera array microscope, a kind of hardware version of the compound eye. It will let us capture images with a very large field of view (hundreds of square cm) at very high spatial resolution(tens of microns). Previously, in the laboratory of Miguel Nicolelis, I studied sensory processing, neuromodulation, and sensory prosthetics in the rat whisker system.

I enjoy working with Python, especially OpenCV and the machine learning libraries: right now my favorite library is imgaug. I am not sure yet whether I prefer pytorch or tensorflow.
