Projects

  • Completed my honors research titled, "Developing a cross-platform mobile application" in which a colleague and I investigated various frameworks for building cross-platform mobile apps and eventually led to us beginning development of the Bizi app using Ionic. Research was overseen by Dr. Gerald Kruse of Juniata College. Our research was presented in the form of a presentation and poster at Juniata College's Liberal Arts Symposium.
  • Completed research titled, "Quantum Computing: The Catalyst of a Computing Revolution" in which myself and another colleague took a deep dive into just what a quantum computer is, how they operate, and how they are going to revolutionize our general understanding of computers in the very near future. My portion of the research was on security risks, integration into society, and overall impact on our perception of computing. Our research was presented in the form of a presentation and poster at Juniata College's Liberal Arts Symposium.
