I founded AngelHacks 1.0 in 2018 and this grew to be an event hosted at Snapchat HQ with 150+ mentors and amazing prizes and workshops! AngelHacks 2.0 (in 2020) had 1000+ attendees and we were able to run many workshops and have awesome people talk. I have raised up to $10k+ in donations and much more in in-kind sponsorships.
UCLA LONN Lab Intern
I analyze brain imaging data and assist programmers on the development of virtual and augmented reality experiments to be used in participates with implanted neural electrodes, as well as am spearheading my own project!
MIT PRIMES CS
I'm in the 2021 cohort for MIT PRIMES in the CS track, doing research and learning about parallel computing and graph decomposition.
Intern @ Hack Club
Over summer of 2021, I intern at Hack Club HQ at Vermont working mainly on the Zephyr (linked) to improve hacker and technical experience as well as some fundraising efforts. The zephyr was one of the most life changing events I've ever been at.
After working on a project with DeepAI in 2019, I started to intern for them. I worked in content development, doing research on data science, writing articles, and marketing/outreach.
Hack Club Community Team
I am employed as a community team member at Hack Club to encourage engagement and retention for new members whilst also keeping the environment both wholesome and technical for club members and leaders worldwide.
Anomaly Science Board / Executive
I'm on the board and am CMO of Anomaly Science, which focuses on the art of the artisans.
Supersingular Ratio of Elliptic Curves
This paper starts with an overview of elliptic curves and then summarizes the Lang-Trotter conjecture. It aims to show that the ratio of Supersingular primes that are 2 (mod 3) to those that are 1 (mod 3) approaches 2.
MIRAI is a neural network that detects and outlines brain tumors in MRI brain scans. This model utilizes metalearning and a MASK R-CNN to be able to detect brain tumors with an accuracy that rivals that of a professional. MIRAI takes in a MRI head scan and spits out a labeled one, as well as a precise outline of the tumor. Upload an image and try it out! *Disclaimer: this model is for research purchases only and not approved for medical use or diagnosis.
Mind Over Matter
I submitted this essay for a NIH neuroethics essay contest and won a Gold Key at the Scholastic Writing Award. I talk about BCIs and the moral implications involved in such invasive techniques.
AngelHacks had remaining funds and we hoped to be able to donate a portion of it towards getting masks to those in need. While we were unable to get government-mandated and medically-approved N95 masks, we were able to donate a lot of K-N95 masks to non-medical yet essential public service workers.
The TARDIS (transcranial applicable repeating deep interchanging stimulation) is a extra-cranial BCI technology we developed which won us the grand Pete Conrad Scholar at the Conrad Challenge. The team is me, Neel, Charlie, and Andrew. We won the top Pete Conrad Scholar award in our track and were chosen for GATSVI. And yes, the name is a Dr. Who reference :)
Sigmoid Hacks – Co-Exec, Marketing, Website Development
The hackathon for normalizing the word 'machine learning' — it really doesn't have to be a buzzword, I swear. The event was very successful, it was Jan 17-19, 2021!
Hack Club AMA Hosting
I've hosted many AMAs with Hack Club (for Simone Giertz, Tom Preston-Werner, Chris Cox, Nicky Case, Gwynne Shotwell) after initially proposing the idea! I've reached out to many of our guests as well as have hosted the calls. It's always amazing to be able to meet your role models.
Arena of Memory Streaming
I do a lot of memory sports, and recently have been commentating on matches (and appearing on others) between memory athletes, and most notably, the arena of memory, which is on twitch @ memorysportstv!
Phillipian Digital Associate Editor
I'm on the digital team at my school newspaper!
