Helping students find each other
As a student, it's not easy to find someone who's taken your class, had the internship you're interviewing for, or led the club you're reaching out. Or maybe, you're looking for a student photographer or tutor, but where do you even start looking? We're building a UVA-internal skill-matching marketplace, the go-to place to find other students.

Connecting students for carpools
As a university student without a car, finding a ride to the grocery store, to downtown, or even to home is a struggle. I want to be able to get to where I need to go, but cheaper than for an Uber or Amtrak ticket. And if you're a driver, you're not changing your routine. If you go to Kroger's every Sunday, then just drop a ride on our app, pick someone up, and get your gas paid for -- simple as that.
Nov 2016 - Jan 2019
Squarespace website for all club needs. I decided to use Squarespace because it's maintainable by anyone on the orchestra exec board and has a comparable cost to hosting a custom website.

New and improved search service for TheCourseForum
Rearchitected the search service for TheCourseForum, a course review system for UVA. Where the previous system used substring matching, our prototype fuzzy searched on indexes including the course reviews, capturing student "slang" for courses (e.g. "orgo" = Organic Chemistry). This dramatically improved all search metrics.

Search videos by content
A Chrome extension to search through videos by their video content, indexed using Amazon's powerful image recognition software. Imagine being able to search and seek through videos based on what's actually in the video, not just the metadata.
Future: Capture audio and displayed text as well. Include other video formats like webm.
