My Sketchpad includes my doodles, just a collection of random projects and collections of things I've done for fun. This ranges from physical prototypes to logos and graphics.
📊 Data Projects
As a stat and operations major, I've done some analytics and written some papers over the years on various topics.
- Heterogeneity in NBA Three-point Shots: analyzes three-point shots made during the NBA regular season across a variety of dimensions: individual players, and two types of subgroups: teams and positions. It focuses on the heterogeneity of the propensity to make three-point shots across these three levels of analysis.
- Understanding Customers through Covariates: analyzes customer purchase data to understand underlying characteristics of the customer base.
- Course Demand @ Penn: takes raw data from PCA and analyzes course demand through student behavior.
- Tweeting Crises: uses Twitter data to understand how crises manifest and promote change through social networks.
Dateabaes: Dating for developers
🏆 1st place – Horizons 2017 Summer Hackathon
Dateabaes is a Bumble-clone dating app for developers made at an 18 hour hackathon. Developers onboard by filling out basic information (i.e. language preference, front/back end preference) to determine "nerd-level" and take a max 10 question quiz to determine their skill level. Once matched, users are only allowed to initiate messages if they are ranked higher than their match. The lower rank must wait for the other to initiate. The messaging portal has been preloaded with a large variety of programming pickup lines ranging from Classy, Cute, to Dirty.

This car was made in Mechanical Design for a race. It is made out of 0.25" acryllic (sides and wheels), 0.125" MDF (living hinge hood and back), with a 3D printed plastic part (roof). Parts were designed in Solidworks 2015, printed using MakerBot Replicator 5th generation, and cut using PLS 4.75.
This prototype was made in Mechanical Design to exhibit press fitting. In addition to project requirements, I included a living hinge on both sides through 0.125" MDF to add an organic touch to the originally rigid aesthetic. Parts were designed in Solidworks 2015 and cut using PLS 4.75.
