Sass and Less support

Adaptive and Responsive Robotics


I'm currently building an embedded system for the gyroscopic stabilization of dynamic vehicles. Combined with off the shelf hardware, the device can interface with a variety of virtual 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 a humanly user experience.




    Skills Used:
    Embedded Systems
    Circuitry/RF
    Linux
    Arduino
    Java (Microprocessor/Microcontroller)
    I2C
    Accelerometer (digital signal processing)
    C++
    Rest API
    Basic Machining



Responsive across devices

Biometric Applications



Patient safety and medical fraud are rapidly becoming an increasing problem. While biometric solutions for identity verification exist for adults, pediatrics has not yet been addressed due to the difficulties that come with obtaining biometric information from children. I am currently working 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 am currently developing a website that integrates numerical methods and algorithms I designed to model the human metabolism. This website will allow 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.


    Skills Used:

ABOUT ME


Components

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 while 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. Every semester, I alternate taking classes in Atlanta and going to San Diego working as a cooperative engineering consultant.
