"The rise of Google, the rise of Facebook, the rise of Apple, I think are proof that there is a place for computer science as something that solves problems that people face every day." - Eric Schmidt
I enjoy the problem-solving nature of Computer Science and make an effort to do impactful work that transforms people's everyday lives. I believe these types of projects are the most empowering for users and personally, find them most rewarding.
Most of my projects are made in collaboration with the Waitlisters, a hackathon team of 8 formed at HackTX 2017. Each of us brings our unique set of expertise to the table atop of our common CS passion making us adept to tackle any challenge. Since then, we've attended a multitude of hackathons producing several award-winning projects!
Our latest project has been working on augmenting the Bluetooth audio protocol. At TAMUHack, we designed a macOS program utilizing Python libraries to access Bluetooth and macOS CoreAudio infrastructure to check for system audio to write the logic to switch between devices with active playback. We built a mySQL database & Java servlet to communicate betwen devices & handle device switching priority with Bluetooth audio devices. BlinkLink’s revolutionary handoff system led us to be recognized as finalists at TAMUHack. Back home at UT, we earned first place for 'BlinkLink' at the Texas Convergent Side Project Expo. You can read more about the project here. We believe we will change the wireless audio experience of tomorrow and look forward to expanding the project to more platforms soon.
