As a Research Assistant at the Sensorimotor Control Laboratory at the Stevens Institute of Technology, I was involved in a project focused on developing neuroprosthetics. In this role, I designed and implemented algorithms to assess and classify tremor severity in patients with late-stage Parkinson's Disease.
When great minds collide. Our lab contains a mix of current Graduate, Undergraduate, & Highschool Students along with a range of collaborators from multiple industries. PUBLICATIONS " The measure of our work. Our range of publications dating back to 2014 include multiple Patents, Articles, Conference Appearances, & more. Appearances, awards, & recognition.
One of the key contributions I made to the project was the creation of a web application that could be used by researchers in the lab. This web application incorporated HIPAA-compliant data storage and access, and was designed to be highly scalable and extensible. I also implemented efficient cluster management using Docker and Kubernetes to ensure that the application could handle large amounts of data and concurrent users.
In addition to my work on the web application, I also provided input to the hardware research being conducted in the lab. Based on the results of my statistical tremor analysis, I contributed to the design of a low-cost system for tremor analysis. This included working on additive manufacturing models and designing sensor arrays for a data collection glove.
Lastly, I performed cost comparisons to identify the most economical Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider for the project. This involved considering factors such as storage, computation, and cost in order to find the best solution for the lab's needs. Overall, my time as a Research Assistant at the Sensorimotor Control Laboratory was a valuable and rewarding experience.
