BiliCam: Using Mobile Phones to Monitor Newborn Jaundice
This project investigates how to use smartphone cameras to screen newborns for dangerous levels of jaundice — a medical condition characterized by yellowing of the skin. I work in close collaboration with UW Medical Center to develop data collection procedures and software, apply computer vision to parse images, and use machine learning to estimate jaundice levels. Work from this project was published as a paper in UbiComp '14 with an Honorable Mention Award.

TeleTourist: Immersive Telepresence Tourism for Mobility-Restricted Participants
During an internship at Microsoft Reserach, I conceived and developed a prototype of TeleTourist, a system that uses video calls with strangers to share experiences for people with mobility restrictions. I interviewed individuals with mobility restrictions as formative work, designed system features, and implemented a subset of them for a prototype. This project was published as a poster at CSCW '16.

Perspective Aware Projected User Interfaces
During an internship at Amazon I designed, developed, and evaluated eyes and head tracking related user interface elements to use in enhanced reality interfaces in fulfillment centers. I combined concepts from computer graphics with HCI to produce several prototypes and demonstrated the system in its intended environment.
Microsoft Surface for Stroke Rehabilitation
As part of a four-person team, I designed and developed technology to motivate and assess rehabilitation for stroke patients affected in their upper extremities, using the Microsoft Surface. We interviewed stroke patients and physical therapists, designed a rehabilitative game played on the Microsoft Surface, produced a prototype, and ran user study with stroke patients. Our work was presented at CWIC '12 and published in a note at CHI '12.

Accessible Aerial Autonomy
I created and explored vision-based localization algorithms for aerial robots as part of a team of five students. We prototyped autonomous cooperation between ground-based and airborne robots and demonstrated localization for a quadrotor helicopter toy using only a built-in camera. We presented our work as demos at GCER '11 and AAAI '11, a talk at CWIC '12, and a publication in TePRA '12.

LogiSketch: A Free-Sketch Digital Circuit Design and Simulation System
I helped developed software for tablet PCs to recognize and simulate hand-drawn logic circuits as part of a siz-person team. I specifically focused on methods to refine sketch recognition and refactoring code. I helped the team with user interface design and circuit simulation. The software was then rolled out and used in Harvey Mudd College’s introductory computer science course.
