The response of an FBG sensor to arbitrary external stimuli represents a multiphysics problem without a known analytical solution despite the growing use of FBGs in classical and quantum sensing and metrology. Here, we study this problem by first presenting a solid mechanics model for the thermal and elastic states of a stratified material. Finally, we employ the computed surface stress and temperature distributions along the grating to analytically calculate the Bragg shift. [Published in Physical Review E]
Deep Learning (DL) can be applied to lung ultrasound (LUS) images, aiding physicians in the diagnostic process. Our research investigates multiple signal processing stages for DL application to identify B-line features in LUS images from COVID-19 patients. Results are promising to proceed with future COVID-19 B-line feature detection using ultrasound B-mode images as the input to deep learning models. [Published in Proc. of SPIE Vol 12033]
We present a complete finite element computational solution to the response of an embedded fiber Bragg grating. [Submission soon to AIP: Applied Physics Letters]
Theorized development of a new protocol for packet routing that is dynamic and kinetically probabilistic. Message transmission frequency could then be modified to maximize packet delivery ratio and subsequently, safety.
Review of fiber-optic sensor devices. Primarily focusing on Fiber Bragg grating devices, an overview is given with emphasis on the history of research, sensor operation, and implementation, as well as the potential for future applications of optical fiber sensor technologies. [Submission soon]
In March of 2020, I started a data visualization company with the goal of creating engaging and elegant interactive data visualizations. I competed with this business concept in the Fowler Business Concept Challenge at The University of St. Thomas and was selected as a semifinalist.
Over two billion people globally rely on open-fire cooking as their primary source of food preparation, presenting health concerns from toxic smoke inhalation. CleanAir, a company that aims to provide sanitary air quality in remote locations through the deployment of carbon credit financed solar cookstoves, finished runner-up in the FGSIC final awards ceremony.
As part of a startup business plan, my DECA partner and I created waveVR with the goal of bringing social virtual reality to everyone. By making inexpensive 3D printed headsets accessible to more people, we envisioned a world where everyone has access to an immersive and interactive platform, lowering barriers to education access.
During my sophomore year in high school I released an organization tool for the Apple App Store. The app was designed to provide students with an easier way to organize school work quickly and precisely into time specific slots. The app was downloaded over 500 times in over 20 countries during its one year lifespan.
A QR code is used on the face of the sticker to direct users to a website where all of our animated AR models are hosted. Check out the work I did with David Zimmermann and Evan Sibbet for this project in an entrepreneurship class.
As part of an entrepreneurship class at St. Thomas, the same class from which Love Your Melon was founded, my partners and I worked with local undergraduate artists to create stickers to sell on campus. We ended selling about $700 worth of revenue within two months and created a Unitags website to feature the artists and their work.
In addition to working on the app, I also developed a Snap Organizer Website to allow users an easy way to download the app on the App Store. Similar to other product downloads on Apple's website, the website for Snap Organizer also used a counter.
My first public website! Developing cocoastudios.co was one of the most challenging projects I've ever faced. The majority of the website is written in PHP to allow for dynamic resizing between different browser dimensions. The website also features the CSS preprocessor "LESS" that can redraw certain style elements on the fly based on the user's device attributes.
I became really interested in programming at age 10 when I made TechTub; my first website that's now emulated through this site. The site originally consisted of embedded games and content that I added to the site for my friends to play during 4th and 5th grade - sometimes during class... The site also included information about a Minecraft server I hosted with over 40 of my school friends in 6th grade.
Having a personal server is good for many reasons. I decided to host my own custom Linux server in order to access media and back up my personal computers no matter where I am traveling.
Prototyping and development of a headset to work with a variety of smartphones. I designed this headset from scratch in OnShape CAD software. The headset sources a Fresnel lens to accomodate a wider field of view (FOV) than traditional Google Cardboard headsets.
3D Printing allows any developer to innovate their prototypes faster than ever. My PowerSpec 3D Creator Pro allows me to materialize my 3D CAD designs within a few hours. The printer is networked to my LAN and controlled through a Raspberry Pi running OctoPrint. When STL files arrive at the printer, they are automatically sliced, prepared, and printed without my intervention.
After designing and printing a VR headset using CAD, I began to work in Unity and Unreal to develop interactive VR environments. This required integration of the Oculus Rift hardware in Unity. Blender was also used extensively to create and animate 3D models to be used in various scenes.
In order to explore the capabilities of the open source Arduino project, I designed and developed my own device the would indicate how far I would need to pull in my car. The microconroller was interfaced with a HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor and was designed to preserve power to lengthen battery life.
