    ripple

    Software Engineer

    Designed and delivered multiple payment flow features on RippleNet, a decentralized payment processing network. These features involved eventual consistency of payment properties and are resilient to tampering by any node involved with the payment or quote. Created jobs responsible for periodically purging Personally identifiable information (PII) older than a configurable amount. In production, this set of jobs handles millions of records at a time. Lead initial investigations into use of Ansible and Terraform to emulate on-premise deployments and into creating a graph-based domain model of RippleNet. Experience defining and organizing GitLab pipelines and balance the tradeoffs between test thoroughness and development velocity. Tech Stack: Java, Spring, Hibernate, Immutables, GitLab

    intuit

    Software Engineer

    Drove three projects in the Intuit Futures group: 1. Delivering mathematical optimization for use at scale across Intuit using Python, Go, and JavaScript (React.js) 2. Designing and implementing performance improvements for the core TurboTax Engine in C++ 3. Exploring the use of Zero-Knowledge Proofs to improve customer experience

    computational biomedicine laboratory at rit

    Graduate Research Assistant

    Computational Imaging of Atrial Fibrillation Tech Stack: MATLAB, Paraview The goal of this work is to noninvasively locate the region of tissue on the surface of a patient's heart that is likely sustaining atrial fibrillation. These regions serve as targets in catheter ablation. Responsibilities include developing a formal pipeline that builds patient-specific geometric models, computes estimates of the epicardial potentials, and calculates phase attributes of the estimated signal. Current work involves creating an algorithm for tracking phase singularity points over time.

    Research Assistant

    Mathematical Modeling of Contact Lenses Tech Stack: C++, Octave Developed a mathematical model describing the interaction between a soft contact lens and an elastic eye, which allowed us to simulate realistic contact-eye systems. Various numerical techniques we're employed to solve a coupled system of equations. This work involved exploring the impact different contact design parameters have on the equilibrium pressure distribution on the eye with industry professionals.
