Objective: To obtain a position in simulation, modeling, statistical data analysis, operations research, or advanced artificial intelligence technologies i.e., neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy systems, and image processing and pattern recognition for the solution of difficult and unusual problems. I am willing to travel or work remotely, and I have a current
U. S. passport.
Applied genetic algorithms to satellite mission planning, satellite geometric optimization problems, and the optimization of satellite cluster maneuvers.
Developed a genetic algorithm tool (in both Matlab and FORTRAN) for application in human-factors and flight control parameter optimization tasks as applied to precision guided munitions.
Algorithm development using image processing and neural network techniques for pattern recognition, distributed sensors and multi-sensor fusion tasks;
Participation in the development and extension of a Lisp based medical claims processing expert system.
