First year of Post-Doc down!

WOW, it has been more than one year since my last update, and while I wish I was on a beach relaxing after all the dissertation defense hell…. I have actually been hard at work on my new position as Post-Doctoral Researcher at Montanan State University’s Data Mining Lab (more info here).

Here is a picture of my walking on commencement to get my hard fought and well deserved Ph.D. degree. Notice that I don’t have the acceptable ‘penguin’ outfit with a fancy suit and everything… in my point of view, the hard and formal part of working for the degree has been achieved through hard-work and determination, so I wanted to have a more relaxed approach to picking up my achievement. Funny enough I spent the following 2 months relaxing after 3 years of stress full Ph.D work wearing only those shoes while traveling around Europe (and some Asia).

Fast-forward 12 months and I have just completed my first years as a Post-Doc at MSU, it has been a hard and heavy years with loads of things to work on and assuming a bigger leadership role. Many papers have been submitted and are on the works as well as many other activities that one does not fully realize as a student. I enjoy my position here since I can continue working on my SDO stuff, and see through many of the things that were started during my Ph.D. studies.

I have made a priority to keep this thing updated and post some more code and useful CBIR and data mining stuff in the future so stay tuned and keep visiting my site.
