Todd McCollough worked as a Research Biomedical Engineer on a Research and Product Development project for Ellumen, Inc. for using electromagnetics to produce healthcare diagnostic images. He had his first patent granted in August 2015, titled “Dielectric encoding of medical images.” He had his second patent granted in July 2016, titled “Distributed Microwave Image Processing System and Method.” He had his third patent granted in July 2017, also titled “Dielectric encoding of medical images.” Todd was a co-author on a paper titled “A Phase Confocal Method for Near-Field Microwave Imaging” published in IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques in 2017. He was a co-author on a paper titled A Novel Cavity Backed Monopole Antenna with UWB Unidirectional Radiation” published in Progress In Electromagnetics Research C in 2017. He was a co-author on a poster presentation titled “Experimental Microwave Near-field Detection with Moveable Antennas” at the IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting in San Diego, CA, in July 2017. He was a co-author on a poster presentation titled “Microwave Detection of an Osteophyte in a Knee” at the 6th International Workshop on Computational Human Phantoms in Annapolis, MD, in August 2017.
Todd received his Bachelor of Science (BS) in Biomedical Engineering with a biomedical signals and images concentration from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, with a second major in Economics, in 2009. He received a Master of Science (MS) in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, in 2010.
Todd began carrying a golf bag and caddying after 7th grade. He was awarded a Chick Evans Scholarship to Northwestern University. The Chick Evans Scholarship is a full tuition and housing scholarship awarded to those who have a strong caddie record, excellent academics, financial need, and outstanding character. The Chick Evans Scholarship is awarded by the Western Golf Association / Evans Scholars Foundation. Todd continued to caddy until he was a junior at Northwestern University.
Todd has experience as an Internet Consultant designing, developing, and maintaining websites, forums, and blogs with a focus on WordPress. He made the former website (active July 2006 – October 2009) for the Northwestern University Evans Scholars while serving as the Technology Chair for 3 years. He also has worked on several other domains such as a site to showcase a psychotherapist. He has experience leveraging data analytics for search engine optimization and writing content on healthcare related topics.
Todd has experience repairing and diagnosing computer problems for Evans Scholars and for students and faculty at Northwestern University. He performed virus and malware remediation, diagnosed general operating system problems, and troubleshot network connectivity issues for laptop and desktop computers while serving as an Information Technology Support Consultant at Northwestern University for a year and a half.
Todd worked for a year in the Northwestern University Biophotonics Laboratory as a Research Technologist. He worked with a microscopic spectroscopy technique sensitive to nano-architectural changes inside a single cell, called single-cell partial-wave spectroscopy (PWS), with a focus on cancer cells. He performed image collection and analysis of different cell types using different software tools.
Todd served as a teaching assistant (TA) for BME 325: Introduction to Medical Imaging (Fall 2009) taught by professor Alan Sahakian at Northwestern University. He assisted faculty with instruction, assignments, exams, and record keeping for the course.
Todd also participated in the Northwestern Undergraduate Leadership Program (ULP) and successfully earned his Certificate in Leadership. The program allowed Todd to develop and practice his leadership skills.
