Work Experience

June-August 2019: Software Engineering Intern, SAP Ariba, Palo Alto

Developed an anomaly detection and seasonal forecasting tool in Golang using Triple Exponential Smoothing (Holt-Winters) techniques to smooth time series data. It was capable of scaling to over one million historical points from InfluxDB, real-time, in an extensively configurable manner. Use cases include detecting a server’s anomalous spikes in resource usage and analyzing trends in environmental data.

Selected Projects

Git repositories on Sourcehut, GitHub, and GitLab


Gathers IRC channel activity statistics from WeeChat logs and performs time-series analysis and forecasting on them. It can quantify, rank, and chart chatting activity over time and display forecasts. It can also detect anomalous increases in activity. Written in Python with NumPy and Pandas.


Analyze password strength given physical limits to computing. Computes theoretical limits to a brute-force attack limited by given physical quantities (mass, energy, power, temperature, etc.) and generates passwords to withstand them. This provides a future-proof understanding of password strength. Written in Go.
