words I live by: Romans 5:3-6
- ...we rejoice in our sufferings
- knowing that suffering produces endurance,
- and endurance produces character,
- and character produces hope,
- and hope does not disappoint us...
Very simply, I am a graduate student doing my Master's of Engineering
at McGill University. My Bachelor's of Science degree, also done at McGill (I'm a creature of habit), was a joint
major in Physics and Physiology.
I am currently designing a fully automatic means of performing the
analysis of data obtained from human skeletal muscle using phosphorus
magnetic resonance spectroscopy. If used in a clinical environment,
this automated analysis is desirable in terms of maximizing time
efficiency and minimizing error.
Included in this analysis method, is a means of modeling the complex recovery behavior of
post-exercise adenosine diphosphate. The recovery of calculated
cytosolic [ADP] is known to be one of the most sensitive magnetic resonance
spectroscopy indices of mitochondrial dysfunction in vivo.
You can find me at The Montreal Neurological Institute. Although I
spend most of my time working in a windowless room of the
sub-sub-sub-basement of this institution, I have been found at
ground-level torturing a poor defenseless piano, and three floors up
and south hanging out at Lyman Duff, the home of Biomedical Engineering
A few slightly more precise coordinates:
- Office phone:
- (514) 398-8524
- Office fax:
- (514) 398-2975
Now is always good.
I knew in a previous life, but I don't recall now.
Work bloody hard at it!
