About Me

Hello! Welcome to my website! As a test of my ability to learn, I created this website from scratch with no prior knowledge of HTML or CSS. Using online tutorials, such as W3Schools and Mozilla, and front end tools, like Animista for CSS animations, in combination with guidance from

, I learned enough to put together a dynamic CV in the form of this website. For more information about this website and the code behind it, see the appropriate tile in the projects section.

I have been a brother of the Rho Tau chapter of Phi Mu Alpha (ΦMA) Sinfonia since Spring of 2022 as part of the Delta Iota class of brothers. The goal of ΦMA is, first and foremost, to inspire, uplift, and support fellow musicians. Our brotherhood believes that music has a particular power to move people and we, as musicians, have an obligation to "aid and bless society" with that power. "With a charitable spirit and the power of music, we seek to bring Harmony to mankind."

Furthermore, in the Spring of 2024, I will be inducted into the Pi Delta Phi (ΠΔΦ) National French Honor Society based on my academic performance, overall GPA, and recommendations from my professors in the French department.

Python Web Crawler and Scraper
for Keyword Detection with
SQL Database Integration

  • Engineered a Python web scraper with BeautifulSoup for targeted data extraction from the Appalachian State University website, focusing on academic research areas like Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering.
  • Implemented advanced keyword detection by searching through HTML content tags (like <p>, <h1>, etc.) and concurrent processing with ThreadPoolExecutor for efficient, parallel web requests handling.
  • Developed a flexible URL normalization and internal link validation system for page crawling, alongside a randomized User-Agent strategy and rate limiting to ensure undetected, responsible, and effective scraping.
  • Integrated SQLite for dynamic queue management and tracking of visited URLs, facilitating systematic data collection.
  • Applied the scraper to identify professors and departmental research in the fields of Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, and other related fields for potential collaborations, demonstrating its practical application in an academic setting.

Haskell-Based Markdown
to LaTeX Converter

  • Developed a Haskell program taking advantage of its 'lazy' evaluation for efficient parsing of Markdown (.md) files.
  • Implemented a tokenization process to convert text into proper LaTeX (.tex) syntax.
  • Employed grammar rules and contextual analysis to ensure accurate conversion, maintaining the original document's structure and syntax.

This Website!
