SixFeetApart

(2020) As millions of people became infected with COVID-19 around the world and I saw the direct impact of the pandemic on my community, I invented SixFeetApart. SixFeetApart is a wearable social-distancing device that utilizes the latest developments in ultrasonic technology to detect when an approaching person comes within the 6-foot detection range. SixFeetApart effectively guides social distancing according to the CDC's guidelines in order to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

MobileMe

(2021) Adults older than 65 years of age suffer the greatest number of fatal falls because of age-related mobility loss. To solve this problem, I invented MobileMe, a device and app that proactively prevents mobility loss and falls in the elderly. MobileMe uses real-time analysis of gait data collected through a microprocessor device through AI to mitigate fall risk and mobility loss in the elderly.

Water Purification

(2019) Conducted a lab study to optimize various water purification methods and created a prototype for a method to purify river water to be used as drinking water in developing countries. Used microbiological procedures and chemical studies to investigate purification methods such as activated carbon, micro-filtration, UV disinfection, and natural coagulants to remove impurities. 

PA Homeless Guide App

(2021) Developed an iOS app as an all-in-one solution to combat homelessness in Pennsylvania and across the nation. The app caters to people experiencing homelessness and allies supporting the cause, providing crucial information, location-specific donation and shelter resources, and policy causes to advance legislation. Presented the app demo Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, and Kode with Klossy's CEO, Karlie Kloss, at Apple's Headquarters in Soho, New York.
