Hello,

My name is James Shackleford and this is my homepage.

I am currently working as a post-doctorial fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital in the department of Radiation Oncology. I earned my Ph.D from Drexel University in 2011 where I worked on GPU accelerated medical image processing with Dr. Nagarajan Kandasamy. Much of my research has been implemented as part of the plastimatch project, which is a great deformable image registration toolkit for medical images maintained by Dr. Greg Sharp and myself.


I have authored a chapter in the NVIDIA GPU programming book GPU Computing Gems Emerald Edition on the topic of accelerating deformable 3D image registration using uniform cubic B-splines. This work has been published in significantly greater detail as a featured article in the journal Physics in Medicine and Biology.

Additionally, I authored a set of GPU memory extension tools for CUDA: libcuzmem and fossa.

When I can manage to set aside a good chunk of time, I also enjoy putting some development effort into my Nintendo Entertainment System emulator retrobox.

In a "previous life" I worked in nano-scale solid state device physics, where I published a short paper on enhancing MSM photodetectors with plasmonics.

I currently spend most of the spare time I can squander working on my Japanese.

Looking for plastimatch build and unit tests?
