I am a bilingual Cuban-American and I love to create. As an elementary schooler, I came up with business ideas for my younger brother and I to pursue. We sold newsletters with ads, DVD rentals from our own collection and even bottled water. I merged my creativity and admiration for technology when I discovered iOS development in middle school. I taught myself using books and YouTube tutorials and released several for-profit apps while in high-school. I graduated from Auburn University in December of 2018 with a bachelor's in Computer Science and will complete my master’s in May 2020.
Please view my GitHub for current progress, additional side projects and course work.
- Graduate Research Assistant - Auburn University (May 2018 - May 2020)
Research into Exploratory Modeling using NetLogo, Scala and Python for sustainable Wargaming logistics for the US Air Force and research on Coherent Agent simulations where I designed and implemented an API for Agents to interact on contexts.
- Lead Software Developer - WonUpIt (January 2015 - August 2017)
At WonUpIt I gained valuable experience with data-driven applications. My responsibilities included overseeing app architecture, improving the User Interface and maintaining legacy code. In addition, I managed a team of developers to release more than 10 versions of the WonUpIt app.
- Technician - Everwave Technologies (May 2016 - August 2016)
As a Technician I received hands on experience with the first three layers of Internet Protocol. I learned ISP technologies such as Packet Switching, installation of T1 lines and Y-Max high power radio beaming to bring fast and reliable internet access to the Rocky Mountains.
- iOS Developer & Tutor - Brodderick.com (2010 - 2018)
I began as a self-taught programmer working on individual projects. I released several apps to the Apple App Store and eventually began contract work. The apps I created on my own include two games and an app that makes it easy to track how much you are spending on gasoline. In addition, I tutored iOS development to young students who were eager to create.
- Artificial Intelligence
This course serves as a well-rounded introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. I studied advanced Informed and Uninformed search algorithms, Supervised, Unsupervised and Reinforcement Learning. Specifically, Uniform Cost Search, A* Search, K-Means, Hierarchical Agglomerative Clustering, Support Vector Machines and more.
- Data Mining
I studied several Data Mining techniques and concepts and the applications of Statistics in Computer Science. Specifically, I studied the process of Data Mining, data storage and operations on a Data Warehouse and Statistical Distributions and analysis.
- Deep Learning
Planned for January 2019
- Algorithms & Data Structures
I studied algorithm complexity, applications of advanced data structures, and concrete algorithm techniques such as sorting, dynamic programming, recursion and path-finding.
