2004-2005 Senior Year Cornell
 
Cornell Autonomous Aerial Vehicle Project
I started this project in my freshman year at Cornell. We are building an autonomous aircraft which can fly itself to complete pre-programmed missions. We are entering in the AUVSI's autonomous aerial vehicle competition, and are the 2003 world champions. Please visit www.cuuav.org for more information.
Economical Autopilot Paper
Autopilot development is very expensive, especially the testing process, through the CUUAV project, we have been developing ways to use modern software design practices to lower the cost of development. My work led to a publication in the AIAA technical journal.

Imagine Cup 2004
Microsoft run software competition. I entered with several students on the CUUAV project and we were finalists in the San Francisco Exhibition. For information on the competition, please visit www.imaginecup.com.
Cornell Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Project
I joined the Cornell Autonomous Submarine team after having successfully competed with them throughout high school, and enrolled at Cornell University as a Freshman in 2002. We placed first in 2003 and are preparing for another victory this year. Please visit www.cuauv.org for more information.
Bits On Our Mind 2004
Cornell Software Exhibition where we displayed a lot of our research into autonomous control and signal processing. Please visit http://www.cs.cornell.edu/boom/2004sp/projects.htm for more information.

Digital Underwater Barcode Recognition
I spent several months developing and refining an algorithm to reliably read barcodes that were written on underwater targets. This algorithm was designed for the 2002 autonomous submarine competition, and utilized many novel approaches to density analysis and line scanning. See my papers listing for more information.

2001-2002 Senior Year Amador

 
AVBotz
This was my last year at the helm of the Amador Botz, we built a phenomenal vehicle which has been used in the following years by the team. The competition involved reading barcodes underwater and determining their depths. We successfully determined two of the codes and placed in the finals!
Competition Civics
This is a nationwide competition sponsored by Congress in order to foster an interest in the inner workings of the Government. We developed prepared statements and worked through a mock senate hearing to demonstrate our knowledge of the constitution and how it applies to the issues of today.
Mock Trial
I spent three years in Mock trial, this year we played out a child murder case. The trials are judged based on the performance of each team, as the facts we are given to work with are often loaded to give one side the advantage in the trial situation, however we always did very well.

2000-2001 Junior Year Amador

AVBotz
This was our second and most successful year in competing in AUVSI's international autonomous underwater vehicle competition. The competition was held in Maryland, and involved determining the depth of a series of man made objects and recovering a marker. As the first high school entrant against twelve prestigious universities, we placed second, only to MIT.
Mock Trial
I spent three years in Mock trial, this year we played out an adult murder case. The trials are judged based on the performance of each team, as the facts we are given to work with are often loaded to give one side the advantage in the trial situation, however we always did very well.
Digital Object Recognition and Tracking
As part of the work to resolve and recover an object for the submarine competition, we developed a very reliable particle detector and accumulator which utilized the positional information between frames, and allowed our vehicle to repeatedly recover a marker where water clarity would allow.

1999-2000 Sophomore Year Amador

AVBotz
I started this project in my sophomore year in High School. We are competing in a collegiate competition to develop a submarine that can locate a circular object, which is emitting an acoustic ping. As the first high school entry in the competition, we were granted special permission to compete, and placed 6th out of twelve entries.
AVHS Student Design Competition
We placed first and received a $10,000 prize in a national competition, sponsored by Levis to design a student website with emphasis on school spirit. Our site was deemed the best, both technically and artistically, giving us first place.
