Project Title

Application of Image Segmentation to Trezona Formation Fossils

I studied fossils from the Trezona Formation in Australia with Professor Adam Maloof. We applied computer vision techniques to segment cross-sections of these fossils with the goal of better understanding the 3D structure of these organisms. My contribution to this project involved applying these computer vision techniques to build upon significant lab work that was previously conducted by other members of the Maloof Research Group. The project enhanced my technical and interpersonal skills, which will serve me well in coursework and future research opportunities. I enjoyed the collaborative nature of research and look forward to continuing to explore research at Princeton.
