Aria Pahlavan

He is a programmer and artist, and recently has been developing web applications, and making cool new stuff using TensorFlow.js.


Before this, he got his Bachelor's degree from UT at Austin. While at school, he completed three internships, the last of which was a software engineer internship at Intel.


He enjoys playing volleyball and eating pizza, for fun.



Professional Experience


Software Engineer Intern

Intel May 2017 ― Dec 2017

I worked in a SAFe Scrum team, where I was able to accomplish many "user stories", during this internship. I helped with development of a framework architecture for a test generator tool built in C++ and LLVM. This tool is being used throughout the entire validation life-cycles from Simulation to Post Silicon, which enables faster run times on emulation and simulation tools/environments.

Electrical Engineer Intern

Luminant May 2016 ― Aug 2016

My summer project at Luminant Power was to develop a technical specification for an electrical transformer. To do so, I broke down the project into three steps: collaboration, research and development.

Software Developer Intern

Texas PetaWatt June 2015 ― Aug 2015

I automated the process of vacuuming a chamber through developing a LabVIEW program to pump the vacuum chamber using a vacuum pump, stepper motor, and throttle valve. The program would initiate the pump and monitor the pressure and temperature while doing so.

Research Assistant

UT Austin Feb 2015 ― May 2016

I generified a large-scale laser capturing LabVIEW application to make it compatible with a variety of cameras used in the laboratory.



Featured Projects


Polynomial Regression Simulation

Personal August 2018

I developed an application for simulating/visualizing polynomial regression —through interactive sampling of data— using TensorFlow.js library. I developed this program with plain JavaScript canvas, and using dat.GUI, I provided an options setting for the user to change the learning rate, number of weights, and training optimizer.

Celebrity Look-alike (Celebtwin)

Personal July 2018

I designed a responsive web app, allowing users find out who's their Celebrity look-alike, using Clarifai celebrity detection API. The app, as well as its server and database are all deployed separately on Heroku cloud.

Granular Synthesizer

Academic May 2018

For the final project of my embedded systems laboratory class, my partner and I developed a portable granular synthesizer, which allows recording a snippet of audio and playing different parts of it at different times and frequencies.

See-Through ADAS

Academic Sep 2017 - Present

See-Through ADAS honors project is an autonomous driver assistance system with stitched video feeds from the perspective of two cars, one behind the other, with useful annotated information. The goal of the this project is to improve situational awareness and efficiency of drivers, so as to reduce driver mistakes on the roads. Our design will accomplish this with object recognition, video stitching, and video annotations.

C++ Stream

Personal Aug 2017

I believe Java 8 Function and Stream API's are more elegantly implemented, comparing to the algorithm and function library in C++1y. For this reason, I decided to implement a set of C++ API's similar to those found in Java 8.

Freechat

Academic Mar 2017 - May 2017

Freechat project is a chatroom Android app that I developed in a group of four students. We developed both the Android app and the servers servicing the client requests.

Augmented Audio

Academic Jan 2017 - Nov 2017

Augmented Audio project is my senior design project, and won 2nd place among 13 teams using just over half of the budget ($599).

Pastiche

Academic Nov 2016

My idea behind Pastiche was an app that would allow people to be a voice in different events worldwide. Users would create events, attendees of an event would add their photos to it, and everyone can enjoy browsing through their friends photo, which would facilitate social change. Additionally, the app can also be used as a photo album to build a collage of photos with friends and family.
