This week I made a presentation to my thesis committee at Georgia Tech to propose the content that will make up my Ph.D. dissertation. I’m happy to say that it went well and I’m on-track to graduate in September of 2009. The video below is an abridged version of the presentation I gave. It’s about 15 minutes long, and gives a general idea of the work I’ve been doing over the past three years as well as what I hope to accomplish before I finish. In a sentence, I propose a way to analyze image statistics locally that improves performance in several medical image processing applications.


On a side note, people interested in creating screen-casts of presentations on a Mac, should consider the program ScreenFlow, which worked great for me! This was also my first presentation created with Apple’s Keynote software, but I’m sure it won’t be the last.

  1. Hi Shawn,

    Congratulations! I have been following your blog for a while now. I found it when I was looking for some stereo vision ideas. I am almost to the proposal presentation status of my PhD. I hope to be there next month. Thank you for keeping up your blog.

  2. Hi Shawn

    Can you share this template and the presentation please. I am specially interested in the segmentation and level set part.

    Thank you

  3. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.

    Outstanding Blog!
