Past Projects and Research
Method and System of Providing Speech Rehearsal Assistance
A method and system for speech rehearsal assistant during a presentation rehearsal includes receiving audio data from a speech rehearsal session over a network, receiving a transcript for the audio data, the transcript including a plurality of words spoken during the speech rehearsal session, calculating a real time speaking rate for the speech rehearsal session, determining if the speaking rate is within a threshold range, detecting utterance of a filler phrase or sound during the speech rehearsal session using at least in part a machine learning model trained for identifying filler phrases and sounds in a text, and upon determining the speaking rate falls outside the threshold range or detecting the utterance of the filler phrase or sound, enabling real time display of a notification on a display device.
Machine Learning Model-based Content Processing Framework
A textual user input is received and a plurality of different text-to-content models are run on the textual user input. A selection system attempts to identify a suggested content item, based upon the outputs of the text-to-content models. The selection system first attempts to generate a completed suggestion based on outputs from a single text-to-content model. It then attempts to mix the outputs of the text-to-content models to obtain a completed content suggestion.
Archaeoacoustics Fieldwork for Aural Heritage Conservation Collaborative Distributed Sound-Sensing at Chavín de Huántar, Perú
While working in an archeological site, I was given the opportunity to help aide in Archeo-accoustic research. Lot of fun!
Developing Remote Sensing Modules for Time-Sequencing Data
Spent the summer working in an archeological site, developing remote sensing modules which are used to gather valuable data for archeological conservation.
Supervised by Michael Saunders, Stephanie Sanchez and I worked to develop industry level code for Saunder's Modified USYMQR Algorithm for Julia.
Predicting Education Opportunity using Machine Learning
We set out to build a model that, given satellite imagery and structured covariate data, is able to provide a reasonable estimate of the performance of a school district.
Reimaging Shallow Structure
We perform smoothing over the raw velocity spectrum data, and then apply methods of unsupervised classification to emphasize features of nonuniformity. We then create a heuristic-driven graphical overlay for accelerating subsurface fault-line/mineral deposit identification based on reflection seismology.
Software Engineering Capstone - Human Interactable Table
Implement an LED grid on top of your everyday coffee table. This grid is reconfigurable through a Bluetooth connected android device.
Create an implementation of Huffman Encoding for an arbitrary subset of ASCII characters. This implementation makes explicit use of data structures to ease processing.
Honors Thesis - General Usage Remote Sensing Module
My team was given the task of design a data acquisition module that is both versatile in its ability to collect different sensory data by alternating sensor units, while also being portable, particularly capable of fitting within the average pocket. The final module is also cost effective, estimated to cost a mere twenty US dollars in order produce a single module.
Parallel and Distributed Programming Final Project
Developed a simple, collaborative editor in Java, using the command design pattern, that provided users the ability to edit the same document simultaneously.
