Hi! My name's Aaron, I'm a fourth year Electrical Engineer and Computer Science undergraduate at UC Berkeley, graduating in December 2014. I graduated high school in rural California, and afterwards entered the workforce, where I worked many jobs and experienced many things. I learned a lot about life, traveled, but never felt my curiosity was satisfied. I returned to school and was lucky enough to attended the University of California, Berkeley where I’ve studied in the EECS program. In my free time I like to code, hike, discover new recipes, and work on electronics. Currently I’m working on a robotic hand that's controlled by both voice and muscle sensors.

Self-erecting inverted pendulum using feedback control with obersever estimation. An inverted pendulum is a pendulum which has its center of mass above its pivot point. Whereas a normal pendulum is stable when hanging downwards, an inverted pendulum is inherently unstable, and must be actively balanced in order to remain upright. Download Paper | View Video
Optimization of a formula for doing 2D convolution on images. This project demonstrates the use of intels intrinsics, parallelization, register caching, and other optimizations including thorough understanding of the differences between heap, stack, and static memory and exploitations thereof. Code Examples
Design, manufacture, and assembly of an EEG. An EEG is a record of the oscillations of brain electric potential recorded from electrodes on the human scalp. The project focused on detecting the roughly 10Hz alpha waves that are associated with the eyes-closed-waking state (detectable while blinking). Design Files
Using MapReduce to answer a big data problem. The question is this: given a word, what other words are statistically associated with it? If I say 'love,' or 'death,' or 'terrorism,' what other words and concepts go with it? Code Examples
Implementation of a distributed key-value store that runs across multiple nodes.
