MOCI - UGA Small Satellite Research Laboratory

MOCI is a low-earth orbit satellite currently in development at the University of Georgia's Small Satellite Research Laboratory. The satellite will take images of the Earth's surface and atmosphere as it passes over and reconstruct 3-dimensional models of the Earth's landscape and weather patterns using novel implementations of the Structure-from-Motion pipeline.

I've had the honor of being involved in this project for the past three years. I started off developing a suite of Python scripts that simulated the image capture process with the popular 3D modeling program Blender. Nowadays I'm on the Payload Software team, where we develop the actual software that will go into flight.

We are expecting to finish this project in a couple of months, which will hopefully put us in position to launch in the fall of 2020.


Hack-toml is a parser for TOML written in Hack. TOML is an awesome human-readable configuration file format, and Hack is my preferred language for web development. You can read more about the project on its GitHub repository.

Asset 4


Muze is a music streaming app I've been developing for about three years. It does not aim to replace the major streaming providers today, but rather primarily to aggregate them into one app. I intend to revolutionize the way people organize and enjoy their music. In addition, it will serve as a social platform specifically tailored to sharing and exploring music. In the future, I'd like to run some gnarly machine learning on it too, to perform grammatical analysis of music in order to improve recommendation and classification.

This project has been a long time coming, but it now resembles a releasable product, so I hope to have it released very soon.
