I re-implemented the Harris and Shi-Tomasi corner detection algorithms. This was done as part of a project for CS 231A (Computer Vision) at Stanford University.
Using the Yelp Academic Dataset, I worked with Jocelyn Hickcox to implement an algorithm that provides restaurant recommendations for someone on a road trip given an origin, a destination, and various desired attributes. This was done as part of a project for CS 221 (Artificial Intelligence) at Stanford University.
Using a dataset of flight volume between cities, I worked with Stanley Wang to create a mathematical model of disease spreading across a social network of locations using Markov chains and population models for Palantir’s Hack Week 2013. We tuned various paremeters to simulate diseases such as the flu or pessimistic situations like a zombie apocalypse.
Using the Global Terrorism Database, I compared the effectiveness of different machine learning algorithms in predicting where and when terrorist attacks would occur. This was done as part of a project for PHYS 416 (Computational Physics) at Rice University.
I built and maintained the website for the annual TEDx event at Rice University.
I prepared notes for TA sessions as a Course Assistant for ELEC 241 (Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering), taught by Don Johnson at Rice University.
I prepared a talk that gives a concise primer on linear algebra with a focus on invertibility and various approaches that can be used to determine if a matrix is invertible.
I prepared a talk with that gives a quick introduction to support vector machines (SVMs) and kernel methods. In particular, I begin with a motivation rooted in Lagrangian mechanics.
I built and maintained the website for the Rice University South Asian Society. It has since been changed and refactored by the current officers.
I built and maintained the website for Catalyst, a student-run research journal at Rice University. The linked version (courtesy of the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine) is as of June 29, 2013, when the site was under my jurisdiction.
I went to the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics for my last two years of high school. This is a collection of notes from the classes I took there.
