Projects

Personal Website
  • Designed and Maintained my personal website on an Ubuntu server like a full-stack developer, with the skills of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, PHP, and Ubuntu.
  • The website also has CMS features and it wins a 100% Lighthouse performance score.
Face-Control Snake Game
  • Applied a TensorFlow model called PoseNet to detect the player’s position in real time, so that the player can move their face to control their snake to eat more apples.
Prefix trees and Melodies
  • The program stores words and their prefix’s in the Tree data structure. And people can look up a prefix and then get a list of the corresponding words that have the prefix. This program was written in Python.
Neural Network with MNIST database
  • Applied image classification with 95.96% accuracy on the MNIST dataset using a neural network applied through TensorFlow.
Bank Management System
  • Applied a variety of software design patterns including Iterator, Observer, Strategy, and model–view–controller. Also designed a fully functional GUI for user input using the java swing package.
  • Implemented software testing code using JUnit.
Library Management System
  • The library management system was developed with my classmates at Northeastern University. This library management system satisfies the basic needs for library management such as borrowing books, returning books, and searching for books. This library management system was written in C++.
Whack A Mole
  • Developed a popular arcade redemption game with Verilog in FPGA board.
Eventac
  • Designed a user-friendly prototype for an event-based social network with a team of six.
