Statement of Interest
Hey, I'm Ajoke(not pronounced -a-joke) Williams and I'm a senior in Biology. I took 20.309 my sophomore year and it was a frightening experience;mostly because the class was really hard for me. Nevertheless the material was awesome. Because of 20.309 I received my first exposure to optics and matlab. Although 20.309 only touched on geometric optics I found thinking about light and its propagation through space and matter exciting. Fast forward to my senior fall year and I found myself taking a Modern Optics class and working in a UROP where I mostly code in matlab, which is pretty ironic since geometric optics was not my friend my sophomore year and I have never before considered myself a "programmer". My expectations for this class are to learn more about optics and how optical components are interfaced with electrical and digital components to make robust biological measurement/imaging systems, to improve my programming skills and learn how to build a PCB board. Right now I think I'm leaning towards working on the STORM imaging method for a final project.
All journal entries will be written on my personal blog ( from which I have removed all personal blog related entries =D ). All code related to my final project can be found in my public folder.
[joke021] and will remain there until May 23 ( after which I will transfer them to the course share).
