My latest hobby is zeoling
(sharing thoughts in different places in the world).

Other Graduate Projects
Here are some of my graduate course
projects. Each of them is could potentially become a
paper. If you are interested in these projects,
please feel free to contact me.
Markov chain model of English construct using usage-DB
Markov chain model of English construct query of "Usage DB" to
check grammar: A novel research project to check the "grammar"
of an arbitrary text. This is a statistical method using 3rd
order Markov chain. Basically it splits any given sentence
into different blocks based on the English construct and
Markov model and queries the huge "Usage" database (Google
querying of www). Based on the statistics obtained the
algorithm estimates the correctness of the system. This method
offers the advantage of checking popular quotes even if
grammatically wrong. This project was coded in python.
Analysis of Victim Trace Caches
A novel research project
analyzing the effect of having a direct mapped victim trace cache
stored in the memory by directly accessing the L2 cache from the trace
cache, in partial completion of the course Advanced Computer
Architecture (CS/ECE 752).
