I come from a family of musicians, so music played a huge role in my upbringing, childhood, and has colored a large portion of my worldview today.

During my time at NASA Ames this summer, I helped develop an app that would help astronomers upload their photometric data from telescopes, and visualize galaxies. I also helped develop a number of image analysis and statistical test features.
As a freshman, I also worked with a three-person team to design and launch an app, "Habitlab," which aims to help people gain control over their online browsing habits. See the app here.
DABIRI Lab: Bio, Mechanical, and Fluids Research
Conducted research at the intersection of mechanical, bio, and fluids engineering. Designed a cost-effective experiment from scratch that isolated the effects of temperature and viscosity on jellyfish morphology as a model organism for other oceanic species.
During my research, I both learned, and self-taught myself a variety of skills:
As Balloonerang Team Lead, I led a talented team of 5 engineers to research and prototype on mechanical design, board fabrication, and aerodynamic research. Responsibilities include project design, organizing design review meetings, and coordinating build sessions.
Our goal is to build an energy-efficient autonomous payload that will navigate back to launch site. Last fall, we became the first group to ever do a tethered balloon launch on campus with multiple cut-downs.
