Really into trains
This is my web presence™. It is not very interesting right now because I am lazy I just love mimimalism, but it sure does load fast.
I studied electrical engineering and computer science at MIT and I currently work at Khan Academy doing software development and promising my friends a video series on dynamic programming. In my free time, I have worked on a few other projects which I consider worth sharing:
- Sigmabox, an attempt to build a modern calculator app using modern web technology (circa 2014).
- The real-time LED MBTA map, which displays the current position of trains throughout the MBTA system and for a time lived on my wall in Cambridge (and was briefly featured at the MIT museum!) Now that I live in Mountain View, I am considering doing a BART/caltrain version.
- Robin, a prototype wearable echolocation device for blind people. There's not much to share here yet, as the project is still under active development, but you might want to check out a demo video.
- Yelling at Trains, an as-yet very sparse blog about transit and urban planning, which I hope to continue updating.
Here is my CV [pdf]. You can find other things I have created on Github and Medium. If you want to contact me — please do! — the best way is to send email to idreyn [at] gmail [dot] com.
