Historically, I have been highly research oriented. I have an MSEE and I am an expert at MATLAB programmer I am very good at implementing a self-contained research papers or projects in which you know the details, the more the better, of what you want implemented.
I have studied and been involved in several areas of simulation. These are:
Digital Signal Processing
Digital Filters: Time/Space & Frequency Domains; Time Invariant and Adaptive
Digital Image Processing
CAD 2D Geometric Programming
I typically start a project by finding out as much as I can about it via chat. I need to go through a feasibility study and literature search before accepting a project once awarded. This takes usually a day to three, depending on mutual availability.
Courteous, ready to go the extra mile, very quick to resolve the issue and understood the issue perfectly. Stephen is a very talneted and skilled individual in the field of Image Processing , the way he handled the project from pre-processing , feature extraction to classification was very cooperative and professional. Would hire again and again.
- Algorithm Engineer; Cummins-Allison Corporation, Mt. Prospect, IL (847-299-9550);
Established DSP algorithms for repeatable scores in MATLAB and (6 CPU) TI DM642 fixed point C++ real-time embedded firmware for fuzzy classification between good and bad (worn, tears, tape, and graffiti) US Currency notes ($5, $10, $20, $50, $100) in all applicable series (years/styles). Designed algorithms to align, denominate/series, compare with Brick templates, and score. We used Clear Case for source control.
Jan 2000 - Dec 2002 (2 years, 11 months)
- Algorithm Engineer; Digimarc Corporation, Beaverton, OR (503-469-4800)
Developed and tested new digital watermarking technology (steganography) in C++, consisting of image alignment, region separation, spectral IF shaping, block coding using pseudo-random PN sequences, turbo coding error correction, and Kerdock (coset/Walsh) codes. We used Visual Source Safe for source control.
