I am an undergraduate student studying Computer Science at
the University of Utah.
I am a member of the InitialD Lab
in the Data Group in the
School of Computing working with
Professor Feifei Li.
My research interests lie in database management systems, distributed systems and
the security of operating systems. I am also interested in big data problems and
applications, specifically in looking at how we can solve them from a systems level.
Research projects I've been involved with...
|STORM: Spatio-Temporal Online Reasoning and Management of Large Data
||Within the STORM project, worked on data import, which includes bringing in
large amounts of data from twitter, building a generic import function into
the application to let others upload their own spatio-temporal data and
researching data deduplication methods.
|Spatio-Temporal Analysis: US Election 2016
||Within the election project, worked on taking data store of tweets and running
it through systems to find political tweets and assign them to their appropriate
county based on location, then pushing them to database.
Side projects I've been working on...
|Ozone Heat Map
data for the state of Utah over several years, allowing you to compare year-to-year the trends.
I built this for a hackathon at the University of Utah hosted by the U of U ACM and Goldman Sachs.
My team took 3rd overall. Here's where I got the data from.
See it in action. (Not really mobile friendly. You may have to adjust your zoom.)
Class projects I've helped build...
||Mobile app built as my senior capstone project. This is supposed to be the pinnacle of my
undergrad career. More details and a beta coming soon. Built with an
||Project for my Data Mining course. My team took NBA statistics for the 2010-2016 NBA
seasons and performed multiple clustering and analysis on them. Final report coming soon.
||Class project built with a large team to create a simple sprite editor. The app
was built in C++ and uses the Qt framework.
Here's a screenshot of it.
||Class project built with a partner.
My first "big" project as a programmer. Added a lot of fun extra features which can be found
in the readme on the site. Should be easy to build if you have a Java environment.
Outside of Computer Science...
Sports are fun.
I've read some good books lately.
