EXPERIENCE

University of Washington, Department of Physics – 2018 to 2019
Research, Large Hadron Collider, Switzerland

Machine Learning – Created and tuned decision tree models to separate signal data from background data in search for long lived exotic particles from Higgs Boson decays, using AdaBoost algorithms with cuts based on Fisher discriminants
Wrote C++ code to process data from Monte Carlo simulations including complex linear algebra calculations in order to provide variables for machine learning
Created Monte Carlo simulations of particle collisions and used three types of clustering algorithms to classify particle trajectories into jets

Machine Learning Projects – 2018 to present

Recognizing metal manufacturing defects in machine vision inspection images using models based on Naïve Bayes Classification coupled with Wavelet Analysis, and models using Deep Neural Networks and Convolutional Neural Networks
Recognizing integrated circuit lead leg defects with Naïve Bayes Classification and Wavelet Analysis of microscope images (Kaggle)
Neural Networks for modeling and prediction of dynamic systems
Recognizing genres and artists of music with Naïve Bayes Classification and Support Vector Machines

Micro Encoder, Seattle / Mitutoyo, Japan
Intellectual Property Manager / Patent Agent –2017 to 2019
