Einstein Papers Project
I worked with Dr.
Tilman Sauer on the Einstein Papers Project database. We worked to find an
estimate of the number of items present in the archives, since duplications and
errors are frequent. Dr. Sauer presented our work in an invited talk "The
Expanding Universe of the Einstein Archives Database" at a workshop
"Editing Centenary Scientific Manuscripts" held at Université 2 in
Nancy, France on September 23-24, 2007.
By the request of the
Einstein Papers Project, the work will not be shown here.
worked in the Infospheres lab with Dr. K. Mani
Chandy, grad students
Annie Liu, Concetta
Pilotto, and Matt

worked with Dr. Ryan McLean on a radiation detection project to interdict dirty
IPSN Paper (was not accepted, unfortunately)
My SURF Fellowship was
funded by the Arthur Rock Foundation.
This project was featured
in a news article: here.
Community Seismic Network
I worked on the Community Seismic Network, with Dr. Robert
Clayton, Dr. K. Mani
Chandy, Dr. Andreas Krause, grad student
Michael Olson, and
three other undergraduate students.
My SURF Fellowship was funded by Dr. Kiyo and Eiko
This project was featured in some news articles:
Caltech Student Microgravity Initiative
I also worked with a group of other undergraduates to apply for
the NASA Microgravity University, with faculty support from Dr.
Morteza Gherib. If accepted, we will be able to perform a fluid dynamics
experiment in microgravity.
website for that project is available here.
Unfortunately, we did not get accepted. It was still a good learning
Community Seismic Network
I continued my work on the Community Seismic Network, culminating in presenting my Bachelor's thesis to the department.
My work was published in the Caltech Undergraduate Research Journal. The project has
continued since I left it and is now available as an Android app.
Student Life and Master's Award
I was one of the winners of the 2010 Student Life and Master's Award. This is "presented to undergraduates whose concern for their fellow students has been demonstrated by persistent efforts to improve the quality of undergraduate life and by effective communication with members of the faculty and administration."
I was awarded a fellowship to pursue my PhD at Johns Hopkins University, working with Professor Yair Amir.
I worked on enabling surgeons to perform sugery via the da Vinci surgical system over long distances reliably.
This project was to explore the possiblity of sharing connectivity between phones by running an app. We ported
Spines onto the Android platform for a proof of concept.
