🎥 Software Engineering Intern at ASML
Remote

As a data scientist/software engineering intern at ASML, I worked with another intern to create a Tensorflow model to automate a tedious human process in their workflow. Our project saved nearly 1000 man-hours per year for engineers.

As a data science intern at Fortive, I worked on various projects with Fortive's operating companies. The projects mostly involved understanding and cleaning data, realizing key insights and creating visualizations, and communicating strategies for companies. Additionally, I developed comprehensive educational Python resources for corporate leaders who wanted to perform their own analyses.

🐛 Fuzzy String Interpreter at Fortive

At Fortive, my keystone project used artificial intelligence to parse and aggregate data about human written inputs.

AutocompleteView is a SwiftUI view that provides automatic completions as a user types in text field.

It’s built on SwiftUI, and the codebase is pretty small so you can quickly go through and learn how it works. Since it’s so small, it’s not extremely flexible or fast.

2020

The NASA Web API is a simple program created by me on my website designed to let the user search the NASA media database, learn more about them, and favorite media they like in an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. This project was done as a submission to the Capital One Software Engineering Summit.

2020

A small Pokemon Horoscope Widget. Adding this app as a widget shows you a different random Pokemon every day, kind of like a horoscope. It's not completely finished but the core idea is implemented and it just needs some polishing at this point.

2020

Notion slides is a Google Chrome extension that allows users to navigate Notion databases in a slide show.
