Dave is a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas – Austin conducting ML research in compressed sensing. After receiving his M.S.E. degree, he subsequently took a leave of absence from academia to work on more applied projects in medical imaging. Currently he resides in San Francisco, working as a research scientist to improve signal acquisition in surgical imaging. His wider interests include ways in which data science can be used to improve medical, environmental, and socioeconomic problems.
Outside of tech, Dave loves backpacking and ultra-distance cycling. He welcomes any opportunity to connect with nature and build community with the people around him.
