I am an experienced data scientist with a background in artificial intelligence and robot vision. I also do software development for complex scientific applications and algorithm development using artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, image processing, statistics, and advanced mathematics techniques. I primarily work in R, Perl, and Python. Have also worked in Lisp, Prolog, C, C++, Java, and Fortran. My experience includes related database design and integration for large complex datasets. In addition to independent work, I also manage software development teams. I also have an additional specialty in assisting customers with the development of government proposals. Responsibilities include storyboarding, organizing, writing, editing, formatting, graphics, project planning, budgeting, forms, and proposal team management. Customers vary in size from startups to Fortune 500 companies and proposal scale varies from SBIRs under $100K to over $100M. Experience with funding agencies including: Army, Air Force, DARPA, DOD, DOE, DOT, Transportation Research Board of the National Research Council, NIST, and USPS. Employment: 6 years as an independent consultant Soar Technology (Small Company) NovoDynamics, Inc.

Electrical Engineering - Pennsylvania State University B.S. Engineering Science - Pennsylvania State University
I am currently working as a software engineer specializing in library automation software. My responsibilities are varied including working with 3rd parties to integrate with new hardware, working with customer support to identify and fix bugs, testing and QA of our code base, and cross development with other teams. I also work to improve our process, which is based on Agile methodologies. I have created an oDesk profile as a way to get a bit of extra work on the side. Generally I'll have about 10 hours per week available for freelance work. I am seeking freelance work in an effort to pay off my student loans as quickly as possible. In 2013, I finished a master's thesis in Electrical Engineering at University of Tennessee. Both my graduate and undergraduate work at University of Tennessee have been in Electrical Engineering with GPAs above 3.8 and an emphasis on the computer-vision/software side of robotics. As a graduate student, I worked as a teaching assistant, a research assistant, and as an advisor to the IEEE student branch and its robotics team. I had major responsibilities as a teaching assistant (delivering lectures, project management) and served as a driving force in the procurement of funding for my research. During the 2012-2013 school year, I worked to found the IEEE Graduate Robotics team, and oversaw all aspects of its creation and operation, including recruiting, getting faculty support and support from the IEEE student branch, leadership, and project management. More than a dozen students were involved over the course of the year. In April 2013, the team travelled to Jacksonville, FL for the IEEE SoutheastCon Open Robotics Competition. The autonomous robot that we built to sort and deliver cago in a simulated shipping warehouse took home the 1st place award at the competition. Before graduate school, I had the pleasure of doing two fascinating internships - one for NASA Goddard Space Center at the Robotics Boot Camp and one at the Oak Ridge National Lab working with an experimental astrophysics research group.
I am a senior undergraduate majoring in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science. I have had experience programming for last 3 years.I'm skilled in C++ and Python. I have experience with Java and Haskell. I am interested in computer vision and robotics projects. I have worked with Point Cloud library to register point clouds from different viewpoints to create a model of a bridge. I have also worked on building the software stack of an underwater robotics project using ROS (Robot Operating System).
I am a talented C, MATLAB/Simulink Programming Developer and Embedded Software/Hardware Engineer to be hired. Throughout my career I have been working with C Programming, Education & Tutoring and Embedded Hardware/Software for many companies around the world. I have also worked as a Machine Learning and Robotics Developer. I have had dramatic results with my previous employers and promise to deliver the same for your company if outsourced. I am ready to be hired by you.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:John.sokol I have been building electronics and writing software since I was a small child. My expertise is in control systems, networking, Audio and Video streaming. I specialize in product development and because of a diverse background in many areas from Material science, thermodynamics, information theory and very hands on knowedge from Linux device drivers and low level kernel work to small micro controllers like the Adruino and Atmel AVR there is nothing I can't fix or build.
Barrett Ames Agency Contractor
My time at NASA working on the DARPA Robotics Challenge, as well as my Cornell University Computer Science degree have prepared me to tackle a wide variety of software related challenges. For example, I have extensive experience developing image processing algorithms for use by NASA's Valkyrie. These included realtime 90 FPS GPU enabled HDR, real time GPU enabled depth image filtering, and grasp point detection using Convex Optimization. Furthermore, I have experience developing Extended Kalman Filters for pose estimation, and basic ground vehicle control. In addition, I have experience developing novel compression algorithms for point cloud data. In short, whether you have an iOS app that needs to take advantage of sensor data, image processing to create an interactive display, or GPU acceleration to accelerate a slow processing, I'm the developer for you!
