  • I received the annual computer science department award of academic achievement.

Work Experience

Georgia Tech Research Institute

Student Research Assistant • January 2016 - Present

  • I have been developing and researching a new data model for handling and analyzing sonar data.
  • I have developed, deployed, and manage a web application hosting this new data model.
  • I researched and implemented a crime forecasting system using Python and PostgreSQL.
  • I worked on the development of a wearable technology based 911 communication assistance tool.
  • I worked on the research and development of a parallel, distributed stream processing library using functional programming in Scala.

The Boeing Company

System Architect Intern • May 2017 - August 2017

  • I developed a security auditing tool suite for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 using Bash.
  • I helped with the developed a web-based data visualization tool using HTML5, C#, and SQL Server.
  • I developed several perl scripts as needed by team members.

The Boeing Company

IT Intern • May 2016 - August 2016

  • I documented and executed an upgrade plan for the company’s identity management servers.
  • I developed an Outlook-integrated conference room mapping tool.
  • I designed and began development of a web-based Kanban board tool.
  • I developed an in-house analytics tool to manage which types of employees are accessing certain sites.

North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics

Teaching Assistant • August 2014 - June 2015

  • I tutored students who needed help in the AP Computer Science I and II classes.
  • I assisted the computer science professors with anything they needed, such as looking over assessments before they were given.

North Carolina State University College of Textiles

Research Intern • June 2014 - July 2014

  • I participated in an engineering research internship at North Carolina State University’s College of Textiles under the Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies (ASSIST) Program. The ASSIST Program conducts research on wearable technology that harvests energy from the human body instead of a battery or other source of electricity.
  • The company Porticos came to the ASSIST program at NC State looking for a few students to conduct some research on their new product the Porticool. The Porticool is a cooling vest that regulates the body temperature of people who work in environments of high temperatures. The company wanted us to look into integrating a self-powered electronic system into the vest that could potentially power various sensors. We used thermoelectric generators to create a current from the temperature difference between the vest and the body.
  • We looked into what sensors we could possibly power, along with what sensors we would want to power. We wanted to integrate different sensors into the vest depending on the desired use of the vest. In a situation like a fire fighter, we may include sensors like a heart rate monitor, air quality sensor, and some sort of indoor location mechanism. These sensors would be working together to make the firefighter’s job safer, ensure their safety, and regulate their body temperature in the harsh environment.
