Version 1.5.9e last one standing
Referent: Raja Oueis
I'm a huge Tony Stark/Iron Man fan– I even dedicated my master's thesis to the fictional guy. Now, I continue my academic journey as I research in the realm of computer vision, because I want robots to map, localize, understand, and plan like we do (or like J.A.R.V.I.S. does).
Oh and I'm extremely interested in tinkering with the Emotiv EEG neuroheadset, the MYO gesture control armband, the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, and the Leap Motion controller (and any combination of the stuff).
Meanwhile, I've been the Lamba Labs communication manager, the resident foodhacker and silkscreen printer, and somewhat of a namer of things (yes, members keep asking me to name events, products, …).
I've also offer my technical skills to projects at Lamba Labs when the need arises as a tinkerer/programmer, while I've thoroughly obsessed over my job as an event curator at AltCity.
On top of that, I'm a technical researcher/writer/editor. At my thesis defense, the committee suggested I switch from engineering to writing– I didn't know whether that was a compliment to my writing skills or an insult to my engineering skills, though…
Regardless of what they meant, I'm jumping back into academia for round 3: a DPhil in Engineering Science. Wish me luck!
