Jan. - Aug. 2012
In the few months between graduating and starting grad school I volunteered in Dr. Kevin Repasky’s lab where I worked on the LabVIEW instrument control and MATLAB data analysis software for a micro-pulsed LIDAR system. This system was used to measure aerosols for atmospheric studies. I worked with Erin Michelle Casey on automating the data acquisition using LabVIEW and improving the MATLAB code, which analyzed the laser backscatter data. Parts of this effort were published in Erin’s thesis available here.
