Notable Projects

First Place in 2018 Pittsburgh Data Jam – Cluster 2

Led a team of 7 fellow highschoolers in a Data Science Competition. Created an image recognition program that attempted to diagnose diseased chest X-Ray images. Designed and implemented a single label classification Convolutional Neural Network using Keras (a python library).

First Place in 2017 Fox Chapel Hackathon

Created a prototype violin that utilized a resistive strip to model infinite intonations of sound. User wears a glove and moves fingers along violin board as if they were playing. Constructed and coded using an Arduino microcontroller.

Internship with Starzl Transplant Institute at UPMC Biomedical Tower

Created an algorithm in Matlab that identified and recorded cell interactions within 4D images of rat experiments. Compiled all interactions and outputted visualizations of data.

Penn State Hackathon - EE Circuits Competition — Spring of 2017

Entered and won First Place at an Electrical Circuits competition at a Penn State Hackathon. Designed and built a prototype for an efficient lighting system that involved multiple increments of signals using the least amount of electrical components.

Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science Project — Spring of 2017

Created and tested a electromagnetic braking system that slowed down the momentum of a wheel, similar to Hybrid Car systems in use today. Tested the efficiency of this system and future viability of entirely eliminating friction brakes.
