PROJECTS




QuickShake

Mobile App Development

Get it on Google Play Download on the App Store

I programmed QuickShake to solve a persistent problem with meeting new people. Whether it be a new friend, classmate, or co-worker, its helpful to connect with that person's social media and share contact information. With Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email... fully connecting often becomes an overwhelming task. If only there was an instant and organized way to connect with new people. Now imagine if in a matter of seconds, you could share all of this information with an app. With QuickShake you can. Just setup a profile and no matter where you are you can share exactly what you want. If you meet new classmates, share everything. If you're at a career fair or networking event, only share your LinkedIn and email address. Instantly connect the way you want with QuickShake. It's free, so check it out on the Google Play Store and the App Store.

Adaptive and Responsive Robotics


I'm currently building an embedded system for the gyroscopic stabilization of dynamic vehicles. Using off the shelf hardware, the device can interface with a variety of applications that run on either arduino or ARM microprocessors. The goal is to develop a personal robot that interacts using applications built for the android market and fitted for an ergonomic user experience.

Biometric Applications



Patient safety and medical fraud are rapidly becoming an increasing problem. While biometric solutions for identity verification exist for adults, pediatric identification has not yet been addressed due to the difficulties that come with obtaining biometric information from children. From 2013 to 2015, I worked on a project to develop mobile applications that help doctors, nurses, EMT’s and other healthcare personnel accurately identify pediatric patients.

Web Based Nutrition
and Fitness Tools

Due to my interests in nutrition, I developed a website that integrates numerical methods and algorithms I designed to model the human metabolism. This website allows a user to predict his/her muscle building behavior thus enabling the user to optimize his/her diet for maximum muscle gains and minimal body fat gains. Another module of the website uses a modified Gauss-Jordon matrix solver to help a user design an optimal diet with foods selected by the user.

ABOUT ME



I am incredibly fascinated with all realms of science and technology. My projects demonstrate my eagerness to apply my skills and bring new, innovative technology into the world. My true passion lies in space. My ultimate goal is to build space technologies that facilitate the same standard of living on celestial bodies as earth by addressing the challenges specific to living in space. My dreams to build devices drive me to take advantage of any opportunity to just build. I am a huge fan of hackathons as their freedom allows contestants to stretch their coding abilities while introducing great creations to the tech community. I am currently an Aerospace Engineering major at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. I have four semesters of experience as a structural engineer in California.
