GitHub Engineering Portfolio & NIST Presentations

I made a new portfolio of my engineering work on GitHub. Right now, it contains presentation slides from two presentations given at the National Institute of Standards and Technology during my Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship this Summer 2020.

SURF Presentation

A final presentation about my research work on improving the efficiency of heating and air conditioning systems with optimized thermostat algorithms. In a series of simulations, I show that thermostats that adapt to the outdoor temperature and to occupancy of a building can save an expected 36% over conventional thermostats.

Investigating Inequality in Health

Presentation as part of the Belonging Initiative at NIST. Overview of historical effects of racism and slavery on modern health outcomes. Wealth, education, and environmental issues as contributors that perpetuate inequality. A discussion of potential solutions using science and engineering.
