    • Perfectly protected users' credentials and files against 50,000+ automated attacks

  • Bear Maps (Java, Maven)
    • Built a scalable Berkeley map that supports prefix matching search and navigation
    • Optimized the route selection by using A* search algorithm (improved the runtime by 53%)

    • Improved space and runtime complexity with prefix matching feature by using Trie

  • Verbal Clap (Python)
    • Suggested the optimal voice tone obtained from speech dataset trained by Softmax Regression

    • Provided the list of words for the better speech quality using Oxford Dictionaries API and script dataset

  • Yelp Maps Project (Python)
    • Predicted the restaurants' ratings based on the users' reviews using the Linear Regression and Yelp academic dataset
    • Visualized the rating distribution on the Google Maps using the Voronoi algorithm

    • Clustered the preferred restaurant distribution using the k-means algorithm

  • Ants Vs. Some Bees Project (Python)
    • Developed the game inspired by PopCap Games' Plants Vs. Zombies ®

    • Combined functional and object-oriented programming paradigms
