Projects

Every since I was a young boy, I've loved to tinker with things. I'd tear them apart without knowing how to put them back together, much to my mother's frustration. This page is a distillation of my Maker Journey throughout the years. It showcases some of the projects I've built. Those late night coffee-filled coding sessions, multiple burn marks from the soldering iron and a lot of Googling has led to the following creations.

Kinetica

A device to translate sign language into spoken English.

With an innovation grant from Rice University, I am currently building a wearable glove that converts American Sign Language (ASL) into spoken English so that deaf/mute individuals can communicate with any member of society without the need of a translator, thus empowering them.

FlatCam

A novel thin lens camera used in wearable health devices 

FlatCam is a camera that is thinner than a dime. By eliminating the need for a bulky lens and replacing it with a sensor chip as well as using image reconstructive algorithms, we are able to design a cost-effective and thin camera that can be used in a wide variety of medical imaging.

MAM-X

AI Breast cancer Detection Software

MAM-X is a software that uses artificial intelligence to scan breast mammograms and highlight potentially cancerous cells in a more rapid, cost effective and accurate manner. It is being used by NGOs in low resource villages in Uganda to improve screening and detection rates.

Lyfeband

A wearable baby monitor that protects infant health.

Lyfeband is a cost-effective wearable baby monitor that tracks an infant's vitals and alerts the parents if the child may be suffering from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Featured on MIT's website as one of the most promising companies.

Nidus Novus 

A book about youth innovation and hustle 

Published an entrepreneurial book as a guide for the young, wild and optimistic entrepreneurs to start new business ventures. Reflecting on my journey, I wrote this book to inspire and encourage my fellow youth Makers to go out there and hack, hustle and build and defy those nay-sayers who say we are "too-young".
