I am a student at the University of Arizona Honors College pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, Comprehensive Option. I love open-source coding and am particularly interested in humanitarian engineering and coding projects. I was a featured student panelist at the 2015 Dartmouth College Dickey Center Nepal Quake Summit, where I spoke about Chetawani, an iOS app I built to help organize reporters and aid workers following the devastating 2015 Nepal earthquake. Chetawani was downloaded over 8,000 times, and briefly ranked in the top 5 most popular apps in Nepal and top 50 in the world.

I spent the Fall of 2016 interning at Kathmandu Living Labs in Kathmandu, Nepal, where I worked with KLL engineers to build the open-source OSMHistoryServer server/API for history data and the NepalOSMHistory web-based visualization client for that data.

While I am not currently actively involved in any GIS or OpenStreetMap related coding projects, I am always excited to collaborate and work on new ideas and ventures, so please feel free to reach out to me if you have an idea, have questions concerning my previous work, or otherwise want to chat about coding, open-source collaborations, mathematics, etc.
