Participated in an eight week intensive program on discreet mathematics and advanced algorithms. Algorithms covered extensively are Shortest Paths, Minimum Spanning Trees, Divide and Conquer, Dynamic Programming and NP-completeness. The program is funded by National Science Foundation and supported by Princeton University’s Center for Computational Intractability.
Participated in three-week intensive training involving research in molecular biology (cloning the GAPDH gene from different plant species) and environmental chemistry (investigating how to make water from the School’s ponds potable). Skills learned are polymerase chain reaction, DNA extraction, gel electrophoresis, sequencing, and bioinformatics. The two-year program is built to prepare students for science related careers by providing research experience and opportunities for students
Started an initiative to educate young adults by creating awareness among themselves and in the community by their peers about Internet safety and providing tools and knowledge to enable to do more online safely and securely. Safe Teens Online is a coordinated effort enlist motivated teenagers to work as ambassadors to create awareness about online security and safety in their communities inline with various National cyber security awareness programs.
Cryptography - Specialization course
Cryptography is an indispensable tool for protecting information in computer systems. Completed course on inner workings of cryptographic systems and how to correctly use them in real-world applications. Covered more advanced cryptographic tasks such as zero-knowledge, privacy mechanisms, and other forms of encryption. Evaluated workings of cryptography when Quantum computing is a reality.
