My name is James Shackleford and this is my modest homepage.
I am currently an assistant professor at
where I work on high-performance medical image processing techniques.
Prior to joining the faculty, I worked as a post-doctorial fellow at
Massachusetts General Hospital
in the department of Radiation Oncology. Much of my research has been
implemented as part of the
project, which is a
great deformable image registration toolkit for medical images maintained
by Dr. Greg Sharp.
In May of 2016, I was honored to receive the NSF CAREER award
from the Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI) division of the
National Science Foundation (NSF) for work on low latency, parallel, and
context aware vision in computed tomography.
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
. In 2013, I co-authored the book
High Performance Deformable Image Registration Algorithms for Manycore Processors
Additionally, I authored a set of GPU memory extension tools for CUDA: libcuzmem
When I can manage to set aside a good chunk of time, I also enjoy putting some
development effort into either my MOS 6502 based emulator retrobox
or the linux kernel
. When possible, I try to keep my Japanese
In a "previous life" I worked in nano-scale solid state device physics, where I published a
on enhancing MSM photodetectors
