New York, New York
Lately, I've been trying to keep in mind that technology is primarily a tool. Tech folk often get caught up in the tech itself, without thinking its actual applications. I often compare it to fire. Fire is a marvel to behold, but it really shines in its applications.
I worked on all parts of the app, which included Ansible playbooks, AWS configuration, a Flask-based Python API, CoffeeScript on the Angular frontend, and Dockerizing the entire app myself.
I worked on an internal operations management system for a dog daycare chain. The application uses the Django Python web framework. Being the sole web developer, I worked on every level of the application, from configuring nginx to designing the pages.
Worked in a group of six system administrators, handling all sorts of tasks. We handled many college-wide services, including DNS, Active Directory, LDAP, the e-mail system, the college website, etc. Developed proficiency in Python, as that’s how they automate many of their processes.
A mobile app to run miscellaneous scripts over SSH. Built with React Native.
A React Native library to run commands over SSH.
An easily configurable Docker image to backup Docker volumes every hour.
Helped reboot and run a meetup dedicated to figuring out how to get a mesh network started in NYC.
I spoke on a panel about wireless mesh networks. Specifically, we discussed the various benefits of such a network, and which software and hardware someone would need to build one.
After a summer of research, I gave a talk on the performance of various methods of approximating solutions to a set of differential equations that represented a heart's electrical activity.
I implemented a cluster-finding algorithm used to discover groups of related proteins, which resulted in a paper published in an AAAI Symposium.
