Improvements in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Excitation Pulse Design , Ph.D. thesis, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, MIT, 2008.
Before coming to
MIT, Adam was a systems engineer at Northrop Grumman Corporation
(NGC) where he developed signal processing algorithms for
synthetic aperture radar systems.
He graduated with university and college honors from Carnegie
Mellon University (CMU) in December 2003 with a Master of
Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).
He received the E. M. Williams award at graduation (awarded
by CMU's ECE department to one senior for scholastic achievement).
While a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon, Adam worked with
the SPIRAL group researching the optimization of fixed-point,
multiplierless discrete signal transforms. In September 2008 he was awarded his Ph.D. from MIT.
Adam has interned one summer at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, one
summer at NGC and three summers at the Department of Defense.
He is an Eagle Scout, a National Defense Science and Engineering
Graduate (NDSEG) Fellow, and a member of Eta Kappa Nu, Tau
Beta Pi, IEEE, and SIAM. In April 2004, he was ranked as a
Finalist in Eta Kappa Nu's Zerby-Koerner Outstanding Electrical
Engineering Student Award program.
