RESEARCH:
Laser thrombolysis: Jan.93 - present
Conducted basic research into the mechanism of laser-assisted
arterial recanalization. Optimized laser parameters and
identified principal ablation mechanism. Assisted in animal
trials. Procedure is in clinical trials phase.

Non-invasive detection of structures in human skin: July 95 - Dec.95
Investigated a technique to non-invasively detect structures
embedded in inhomogeneous tissue based on measurement of changes
in surface temperature.

Modeling of light transport in tissue: July 95 - present
Evaluating the applicability of the diffusion approximation to
predict optical penetration depth in tissue.

Speech recognition: Aug.91 - May 92, Mangalore University, India
Implemented a voice command recognition system to recognize
spoken passwords based on end-point location and minimum
prediction residual principle.

Modeling Experience:
Implemented a Monte Carlo algorithm to describe light transport
in turbid tissue (C). Wrote code to determine optical properties
of tissue from surface temperature measurements (PASCAL).
Implemented an algorithm to predict internal temperature
distribution following laser irradiation (PASCAL).
