Davis Lab at Harvard University

Undergraduate Researcher (Full-Time, Co-op) 

September 2018 - April 2019

I Independently developed CrowdCurio based on its old version. CrowdCurio was an annotation platform that was used by Harvard biologists to collect through crowdsourcing. More than one million plant specimen image annotations were collected using the updated version of CrowdCurio before I left the position.

In addition, I implemented a barcode decoder using open-source libraries, which was used to remove a significant number (>1%) of unwanted plant specimens from Harvard botanists' datasets.
