Other Projects

EIDU

This educational app for preschool-aged children uses machine learning to provide relevant learning content to every child. I have been working as a software engineer on this project since early 2018.

  • App activity development: I’ve used C#, Unity, and a custom content manager to design, implement, and iterate upon learning activities.
  • Level design: Based on curriculum standards, I’ve used spreadsheets, developed custom Python tooling, and worked with a custom content manager to plan and create a scalable, educational level progression. Iterated upon progression based on user testing.
  • CRM automation: Using Python, I’ve built upon and developed new integrations between various AWS services, SQL databases, and a CRM frontend. This includes: user scoreboards, payment reminders, and an automated customer-facing messaging system that gives users information about their usage data.
