I'm a scientist
/engineer interested in image based biomarkers, i.e., non-invasively visualizing disease or response to therapy. I mainly research cancer using MRI, PET/SPECT/CT, and EPRI but I'm also interested in cardiovascular research.
Sports: Big formula one fan, Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Bears, and Chicago White Sox.
Music: I like pretty much everything except country. Big fan of Pink Floyd. Bob Marley is a god-like-hero. I love house music when I'm programming or doing image analysis. Miles Davis is a mutical genius (say it in Gumby's voice).
Misc: love dogs, science/technology (gadgets), cars, bicycling... Also Member of The Incorrigibles.
My passion is science and science is my career choice, so I am grateful to be a co-curator for #ScienceSunday
Don't circle me if you are not open minded and interested in science. I'm very much against the anti-intellectualism/anti-science movement.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
