Intro

I am a junior at the University of Texas at Austin pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science, with an expected graduation date of Spring 2021.

I am actively seeking an internship for Summer 2020. My interests include cybersecurity, incorporating the natural sciences with computer science, along with mobile and web development. My goal is to foster advancements and discoveries in technology that can be applied to multiple fields of study, and (ultimately) improve the lives of many people in a variety of different ways.

I am most confident working with R, C++, C, and Java, but am willing and eager to learn new technologies. Check out some of my past work experience and projects!

Work Experience

Incyte Corporation, Summer 2019

This was such a fun and fulfilling learning experience for me! It was my first peek into the world of biotech and pharmaceuticals. I got to work in the Translational Sciences department, alongside many talented statisticians, computational biologists, and more. I also got to shadow some department meetings, and attend sessions educating interns about the company and the life cycle of developing a drug.

The brunt of my work involved developing a user-friendly web application in R / R Shiny (web dev package for R) that would allow scientists to query Project Achilles data. At the end of the 8 weeks, I gave a 10 minute presentation summarizing what I've learned that summer and showcasing my project. It was definitely rewarding!

Projects

"CRISPR"

A user-friendly interface for biologists to query the CRISPR/Cas9 and Project Achilles database, and interact directly with the CRISPR/Cas9 dropout screens. The dropout screens systematically destroy genes within a group of cancer cells, to analyze the impact of destroying a given gene on cancer cell growth.

Gave biologists the ability to compare two different groups of cancer cell lines filtered on specific criteria within the application. Cell line groups can be picked based on shared mutations, high and low expression level, or shared fusions. Comparisons output data in form of table displaying means of each group, p-value, and adjusted p-value, and a colorful plot of the cell line groups' dependencies against a user chosen gene, colored by tissue type.

Huffman Coding

Program that compresses files (.hf) and decompresses (.unhf) using the Huffman algorithm.Calculates the number of bits saved upon compression.Uses trees, recursion, queues, and arrays, amongst others.

QEMU Audio

Worked with 3 other classmates to implement audio through the PC Speaker ports in an operating system our CS 439 professor created, capable of playing songs by coding notes at certain frequencies. Done via the QEMU emulator and VirtualBox. Gave 2 PowerPoint presentations in the span of 2 weeks; an initial presentation to discuss our research and a final presentation to demonstrate the end project.

Evil Hangman

'Evil' version of Hangman game, in which the computer narrows the word pool based on the user's guesses. This makes it extremely hard for the human player to win over the computer. Uses maps, arrays, and iterators, amongst others.
