Personal Projects

1. My resume

I have extensive experience in markup languages. One way I like to demo that skill is by using a markup language to make my own resume. This link brings you to the documents I use to create my resume. It has the original template source code as well as the modified file that has my personalized information that employers love reading about.

2. A modified instagram web crawler

While many websites have their own api’s to navigate them with automated scripts Instagram does not. When gathering sample photos for machine learning purposes having a script that can automate the collection of a lot of photos can be very useful.

3. Project Ophelia

This project is meant to simulate the performance of a trading algorithm over actual bitcoin data – but can be tweaked to work with any cryptocurrency/commodity!

 

Northeastern University

1. Improving Music Genre Classification

This is the last project I did at Northeastern. It was for a graduate level elective in Machine Learning. This counted as the final grade in the course. I was partnered with a long time friend and colleague – Eric. We compared results of classification using text data from lyrics against using signal data from audio samples of songs of different genres. Eric studied a classifier dealing with the features extracted from audio samples of songs while I studied a classifier targeted at the songs’ lyrics. As a final step in the project we combined the two approaches we studied into a neural network that achieved a moderate increase in accuracy relative to both individual methods.

Together we got an A on the project.

2. Project Karman

This is the final project for my Senior Design project – known at Northeastern University as a Capstone Project. As seniors six of us designed and implemented an avionics board to be used as the first revision of an embedded avionics board that could be utilized in an unmanned rocket. The project serving as a proof of concept went on to be a pivotal component of the local chapter of AIAA’s attempt to be the first academic institution to breach the Karman line. In this club activity I continued on as the lead firmware developer for the project and taught many peers at Northeastern University in topics ranging from firmware development to project management. Under AIAA sponsorship several more device drivers were incorporated into the design and the communication system for the avionics system matured as well.

3. A Colony of Intelligence

This is a research paper I wrote for a technical writing class while getting my degree. The paper revolves around the growing influence that biology has in the field of artificial intelligence. Many of the points being made are still relevant today!
