    Industrial Experience


    Software Engineering and Research Scientist                                  (May 2001 – May 2002)

    Autodesk Inc., (R&D) Technological Valley at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, Silicon Valley, CA, USA. The main job is to design and implement the Architectural Studio Software for 3D Computer Vision using machine learning and data mining with Java Development, and XML document. Design the Graphical User Interface (GUI), Collaboration Work, and Cryptography Algorithms for Network Dynamical Security. The solution methodologies include: linear and non-linear programming, geometric programming, and interior point primal-dual algorithms.

    System Analyst Programmer                                                                                (August 2000-May 2001)

    Microarray Technology with Bioinformatics Applications, Corning Inc. Optical Fiber Glass, Corning, NY, USA.  The main goal is to classify and predict protein and genomics, analyzing DNA alignments’, and Bioinformatics applications using Data mining and machine learning algorithm. I worked with a twenty research group to invent and develop most of this software, which is called in-house Express Array Technology, and analyze its output for Quality Control in the Data Base Systems. Generally, we used the computational biology techniques for design an automatic quality control system, using C++, java, Visual Basic, Oracle and MATLAB.
