My research interests include topics such as: technology for social good; information management and analytics; distributed systems; applications of blockchain; "smart" and sustainable infrastructure; renewable energy; and other issues in sustainability.
Interesting projects I have worked on recently include: creating and maintaining Tools for Amazon's Mechanical Turk, a productivity-based open-source browser extension; volunteering in response to the 2015 Nepal Gorkha earthquake; programming to monitor and publish data following the 2016 California presidential primary; use of scikit-learn (Python) to predict the value of data points (Human Activity Recognition Using Smartphones, UC Irvine). In August 2016, I attended the Linux Foundation's LinuxCon 2016 North America. Finally, during the summer of 2017, I worked as a paid intern for the Kamusi GOLD language project at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland.
In 2011, I co-founded a small family-run software development and data-entry business. At this time, I am still a co-owner and co-founder of the business, as well as the lead software developer.
