I was pleased to attend the 6th International Workshop on Computational Human Phantoms in Annapolis, MD, in August 2017. The conference was held at the Loews Annapolis Hotel. My team at Ellumen Inc. and I presented some of the results of our research and development efforts. The paper presented was titled, “Microwave Detection of an Osteophyte in a Knee.” A radar based microwave imaging algorithm was used to detect a small abnormal growth in a knee joint. An image was presented showing that it may be possible to use a microwave method for detecting an osteophyte in the knee.

Below are several pictures while at the conference and around Annapolis.

I was able to attend an O.A.R. (Of a Revolution) hometown A Heard Around the World Charity Concert in Bethesda, Maryland, on Saturday, December 18, 2010.  The concert was held at Strathmore which is located in North Bethesda, Maryland, which is right next to Rockville, Maryland, where the band is originally from. The concert lasted over two hours and O.A.R. played for the first time a song called “Fire” which will appear on their new album coming out likely sometime in 2011. This was my first time seeing O.A.R. live and I was very impressed, they sounded great, and it was very enjoyable. Below are some pictures I took while at the O.A.R. show.
