Art Work:

The majority of the following images are the results from courses CIS 400 Chaos & Dynamical Systems and CIS 790 Measure Theory and Fractals at Syracuse University given by Dr. Blair in Fall 2002 and Spring 2007 respectively.

Projects: The following is a list of projects I have been involved with. Some of the projects have been completed for classes, others have been more research directed. Hopefully this summer I will find the time to get these projects a bit more in order.

 

OpenGL Pool

Nothing that original, but fun to workon (Fall 2003).

 

Tetris

This code was used for instruction of CPS 196 (summer 2009). It is written C/C++ and OpenGL. 

 

JNachos

In conjunction with CIS 586 I have used and developed JNachos, a java version of the original nachos. Admitedly there are other Java versions of Nachos already available, this version is tailored towards the undergraduate course in Operating System Design at Syracuse University.
