From October 23 -October 25, 2020 I competed in the MIT Policy Hackathon in the Future of Work track. The certificate of participation is here.

From September 25 -27, 2020 I competed in the ShellHacks Hackathon together with three team members. I worked on the design of the app using Figma.  Our project Diverse Voices won the following prizes:

  • Best Use of Google Cloud (COVID-19 Hackathon Fund) by Google
  • #HealthyConversations using Twitter API by Twitter
  • Wolfram Award by Wolfram Language

From September 18 – 20, 2020 I was a mentor for two teams in the HackMIT 2020.

In December 2019, I was the only Graduate Student Judge at the ENGR 4580 Senior Design 1 Final Presentation by students in the Mechatronics Major at Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

In August 2019, I was a judge at the inaugural edition of the Wilson County Fair STEM Robotics Challenge, Tennessee. The challenge included two categories : Robot Roundup and SUMO-Lego® Mindstorms Robot Challenge events. Competitors included an individual entrant and teams from a high school. Other kids also had the opportunity to create and play with various robots. Some pictures are shown below.

In the Fall 2018 Semester, I used PBASIC to program the Basic Stamp Microcontroller in electronic circuits as part of a course on microprocessors. Assigned projects include an intersection traffic system with/without pedestrian crossing, a Las Vegas casino lighting sequence, security-gate at a gated community, a servo-seven-segment-LED combo, a windshield wiper, a stopwatch and a conveyor belt. Example projects videos are shown below.

As a Graduate Teaching Assistant, I used VHDL in the labs for the course Digital Circuits Fundamentals (Fall 2018 and Spring 2019).

As a Graduate Teaching Assistant, I facilitated the use of  LabView and the NI myDaq for labs in the course  Electronics and Instrumentation for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018.
