Hi, I'm Spoorthi! I’m interested in integrating human-centered design
and technology into social-good projects, especially in the accessibility space. My passion for math and problem-solving founded my interest to pursue computer science and front-end programming to complement design in my degree. This summer, I interned as a UX Designer
working on seller-facing interfaces at Amazon.

PROGRAMMING, MACHINE LEARNING, FRONT-END 

Developed a web app where a user can train a pasta identification model using hand-drawn pictures and test the model on new drawings. Used a convolutional neural network and created our project using Python, Keras (an API from Tensorflow) and Flask with front-end Javascript, HTML, CSS.

PROGRAMMING

Created a python-based word cloud generator that takes in any poem, parses it, determines a specific shape and color (including a range of hues) based on the most frequent topics discussed in the poem, and outputs a corresponding word cloud. The model can be rerun to create different clouds for the poem.
