I also have a history of building applications, mostly mobile and IoT-based systems. Several of them have won awards at hackathons or received seed funding. Most of these were developed during my time as an undergraduate student in computer engineering, through research and personal projects. I focused on developing novel hardware interfaces, and applying signal processing and machine learning techniques on large open-source datasets and sensor data.
I leverage this background in my current research on the design of AI and data-driven applications. My experiences have also led to the design of MakerGhat. I am also currently a volunteer at the Interdisciplinary Design Commons (IDC) makerspace under the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech.
