Downtyme available now for iOS and Android.

Downtyme allows you to match schedules and make plans with nearby available friends. It's the fastest, most convenient way to get together in your free time. I cofounded Downtyme Inc. in January 2014. We're now a cross functional team of 9 engineering and business students from three different top tier universities. We were recently backed by Rough Draft Ventures and won the MIT Enterprise Forum's Beantown Throwdown, an inter-collegiate comptetition amongst 9 Boston area startups.

SIM-V Self-Driving Indoor Mapping Vehicle

A final project for EC450 (Microprocessors) at Boston University. I worked with John Moore to build an autonomous vehicle, which navigates hallways taking pictures of its surroundings. We dismantled an RC car and purchased various components to accomplish our goal of an indoor mapping vehicle. Check out the video for an overview of how it works!

Research Gesture-Based Authentication

Today, security systems are more important than ever before. In this research project at Boston University, revocable alternatives to pure biometrics, such as full-motion body gestures are explored. During Summer 2013, I worked under the supervision of Professor Ishwar and Professor Konrad on this project.
