The lrslib library is a reverse search algorithm for vertex enumeration and convex hull problems. I adapted the synchronous lrslib library to take advantage of multiple processors and cores. The application was developed in C++ and made use of the free boost library. The source code is available here. Results from this research were published in Combinatorial Optimization and Applications.

I wrote functional specifications for multiple projects including a prototype which allowed for the display of various coupon advertisements within the paid search workflow of Bing. I also participated in the intern app competition and won the runner up prize. The app provided an internet streaming radio service, offering a simple way for people to share and discover music and playlists. The app had over 50,000 downloads with a 4.5 star rating.
