Interests

When I am not cooped up in front of my computer screens, you can find me in the various rock climbing gyms in Singapore, mostly bouldering and occasionally scaling high walls. I also enjoy travelling to various countries around the world and hiking in the nature.

When back indoors, I enjoy turn based strategy games such as Sid Meier's Civilization and Football Manager. I also enjoy watching documentaries and catching up on the latest world news and technological developments.

Portfolio

Automation Operational Dashboard on Tableau

Singapore Airlines IT Division
Created an automated process to retrieve deployment information of the various automation softwares that are currently running and consolidating them into a near real-time operational dashboard on Tableau.

Information were retrieved from the SQL server using exposed API. The information are then consolidated in Microsoft Excel using VBA, before being updated into an Microsoft Access database. The operational dashboard is created in Tableau and links to the Access database to obtain the neccessary information.

This image shows an operational dashboard similar to the dashboard that I implemented for Singapore Airlines' automation team. Exact image not reproduced due to confidential information. Image obtained from https://electric-cloud.com/wp-content/uploads/ef_devops_deployment-dashboard.png

The Real App

NUS CS2103 Software Engineering
Modified an existing address book application into a client and property management system for real estate agents.

I was mainly involved in the transformation of the model to adapt the application for our use case. I also added a more powerful search function to allow for quicker and easier retrieval of the data. Worked in a lean team of 3 and programming language used was Java.

Autonomous Obstacle Detection and Avoidance in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Delft University of Technology
Designed and implemented an obstacle detection and avoidance algorithm on a Parrot Bebop quadcopter to allow it to fly autonomously in an enclosure.

Worked in an international team comprising undergraduate, masters and PhD students. I was the chief programmer for the detection and avoidance algorithm and the programming language used is C++. Python and OpenCV library were also used for the project.
