About Me

VT Logo

I'm a sophomore at Virginia Tech pursuing a double major in Computer Science & Computational Modeling and Data Analytics (CMDA: Cryptography and Cybersecurity Track) [equivalent to Data Science] with a double minor in Mathematics & Cybersecurity.

My goal is to use my various communication skills and technical skills to benefit and leave a lasting impact on society.

My strongest skills are creative problem solving, programming in Python, and programming in Java. I'm interested in learning more about and working with Machine Learning, Data Science, Data Analytics, and Data Visualization.

I'm currently looking for a Winter/Spring/Summer 2021 internship related to Cybersecurity, Software Engineering, Computer Science, and/or Data Science.

Experiences

Raytheon

Raytheon Fellowship Program

I'm 1 of 20 students selected to participate in the second cohort of this program as a Raytheon Fellow. I attend bi-weekly lectures and complete a project-based curriculum to build fundamentals in cybersecurity (Linux, hardware, scripting, etc.), machine learning, and development.


MLH Fellowship Program

MLH Fellowship Program (Powered by GitHub) [Fall 2020]

I'm a MLH Fellow in the Externship Program.

Jovian.ml

Jovian.ml (Summer 2020)

As a Python Teacher Assistant/Intern at Jovian.ml, I created assignments using Jupyter Notebooks for students to assess their Python skills on a weekly basis for Jovian.ml’s Python: Zero to Pandas course (hosted by freeCodeCamp.org). I also helped course participants on the forum by answering their questions. Lastly, I graded the parts of the assignments submitted by the course participants that weren't graded by my unit tests which were embedded in the notebooks.


AffirmLogic

AffirmLogic (Winter 2019, Summer 2020)

As a Software Engineering Intern (Winter 2019) at AffirmLogic, I had the opportunity to learn more about how anti-malware and antivirus software function. Using C and C++, I tested the functions of AffirmLogic's cybersecurity product, Hyperion. I wrote a collection of 5-6 programs in Python that were used as a part of Hyperion's framework to constantly monitor a specified directory for any modifications (i.e. a new file was added, a file was removed, a file was renamed), and then group the files in that directory into 4 categories. Lastly, I reported a summary of my completed tasks, remaining tasks, and my plans on how to complete them using Scrum, which is an agile framework developers use to tackle complex problems.

As a Software Engineering Intern (Summer 2020) at AffirmLogic, I had the opportunity to come back and learn more about Hyperion's functionalities. I developed a Python application that allows the other software developers to back up Hyperion's files and data, and allow them to restore Hyperion's original files and data with the backup created. I also created programs in C/C++ to test Behavior Specification Units (BSUs) to test Hyperion's efficiency. Lastly, I'm in the process of creating a React app that allows users to view a system's BSUs, update the existing BSUs, and define new BSUs.


STEM-Away

STEM-Away (Summer 2020)

As an intern at STEM-Away, I had the amazing opportunity to take up 3 leadership roles: Bioinformatics Project Lead, Machine Learning Project Lead, and Project Programming Lead for Python.

When I was Project Lead for the Bioinformatics Pathway (for the June session) and the Machine Learning Pathway (for the July session), I managed teams of 10-20 interns (high school students to professional doctors) to ensure that they successfully completed the project assigned to them. I also helped them by answering their questions and holding office hours via Slack, the STEM-Away forum, and Google Meet.

When I was Project Programming Lead for Python for the Bioinformatics Pathway and Machine Learning Pathway, I hosted webinars to familiarize ~40 interns with programming in Python (starting with the basics), ensuring all interns have a professional working experience (i.e. Advanced Level) in Python.

Projects

Facebook AI Hackathon (August 2020 - Present)

I'm working in a team with 3 other students to design a chatbot that displays information about a user’s stock portfolio and its stocks, along with a voice recognition component that allows the user to specify which stock(s) to add to the watchlist or to display more information about.

Link: COMING SOON...


ATS Verifier (August 2020 - Present)

A Python application that scrapes a job posting’s requirements and responsibilities and picks out key words a candidate should include in their resume

Link: COMING SOON...


PyTorch Hackathon (July 2020 - Present)

Worked with a team of 3 other students to create an interactable Bias-Detection Engine that detects if machine learning models contain bias towards race and gender when they predict results.

Tipper (July 2020)

For the Pre-Work section of the iOS App Development Course taught by CodePath, I created an iOS app that allows the user to input a bill amount, choose the tip percentage, and how many people the total bill should be split between.

The app's focus is to simplify calculating the bill between a group of friends during breakfast, lunch, or dinner at a restaurant.


Back-Up Restore (July 2020 - Present)

During my summer internship with AffirmLogic, I developed a Python application that allows the other software developers to back up Hyperion's files and data, and allow them to restore Hyperion's original files and data with the backup created.

I modified the application I developed for AffirmLogic to remove all company-related information from the code (after getting their permission), making it open to use for all users on GitHub. I plan to further modify the application by allowing users to take backups of their files from file-hosting websites such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.


Libra (June 2020 - Present)

I'm working with a team of ~30 students to develop and updated a machine learning API that allows users to build and deploy models using one line of code.


Directory Monitor (January 2020)

During my winter internship with AffirmLogic, I developed a framework that constantly scans/monitors a specific directory for new files added to that directory and sorts them into different subdirectories based on specified criteria.

I modified the application I developed for AffirmLogic to remove all company-related information from the code (after getting their permission), making it open to use for all users on GitHub. I plan to further modify the application by allowing users to specify the subgroups they would like to sort their files in and which specific file extensions fall under each subgroup.
