Researched use of partially observable Markov decision processes in stroke rehabilitation technology, particularly of upper extremities (arm, shoulder, hand). Research showed the use of Markov decision processes in stroke rehabilitation robotics could improve patient's movement ability by providing additional at-home therapy without strict supervision of physical therapist. Additionally, use of these decision processes could improve feedback given to both user and physical therapist and personalize therapy to, in theory, provide faster recovery of muscle movement following stroke.
Devised and implemented an algorithm which to optimize the way in which students at Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges are assigned and lotteried into classes. The algorithm factored in class room sizes, teacher scheduling, scheduling time slots, and above all student choices and returned a full schedule of classes as well as a schedule for every student. The algorithm also returned college data including which departments, based upon student interest, require more funding, professors, or space on campus, how bus schedule between the two schools must be altered, and how best to schedule labs to fit with student schedules.

Developed, designed, and implemented a number of data visualizations for the Walter Benjamin on Lancaster Avenue Project created by Haverford Professor Andrew Friedman. The Project collected a number of data points indexing modernity on the historic Lancaster Avenue which runs from Philadelphia to Lancaster, PA. The project, a collective of digital scholarship, originated as a student-faculty collaboration of archival research. The data points collected were visualized so as to relate modernity across time and space, and confirmed Benjamin's theory of arbitrary signification. Visualizations available upon request.
