I Joined 2019 RaCAS (Research and Creative Activities Symposium) at University of Colorado Denver, USA in April 2019 and presented our research on Non-Contact Respiratory Analysis using Thermal and CO2 Imaging.

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation Reports & Interactive Map is also called NC-19SRIM. The app was first launched on February 2020.
CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in more than 100 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).
I joined 2-day Workshop: Empowering the Borderland in January 2020.
This workshop was aimed to meet with industry people having a background in CS. Also, what are new research opportunities in school? In addition to that, there is a project showcase where new ideas/ work are presented
An Urban Heat Island (UHI) is an urban area or metropolitan area that is significantly warmer than its surrounding rural areas due to human activities. The temperature difference is usually larger at night than during the day and is most apparent when winds are weak. UHI is most noticeable during the summer and winter .
The term “heat island” describes built-up areas that are hotter than nearby rural areas. The annual mean air temperature of a city with 1 million people or more can be 1.8–5.4°F (1–3°C) warmer than its surroundings. In the evening, the difference can be as high as 22°F (12°C) . Heat islands can affect communities by increasing summertime peak energy demand, air conditioning costs, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, heat-related illness and mortality, and water pollution .
Major impacts of heat island are increased energy consumption; elevated emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases; compromised human health and comfort; and impaired water quality . In our project, the surface temperature with local metrological data is analyzed and visualized in a form of a web application where users can search their area and see the heat island effect in temperature value. A sample web page view for El Paso, TX is shown in Figure 1. The project also visualizes the historical map of heat index over the years (2002-2019). In addition, the project includes the Google Earth Engine mapping system to visualize the heat index map.

ModelMine – An application to mine models from Open Source Repositories
The ModelMine helps you to search for model-based repositories (.uml, .xmi, etc.). For example, you can search for .uml based repositories. The option is not integrated with Advanced Search in GitHub Website. Also, Think of it the way, you want to search a repository that has a language: Java and repository have model files(.uml or .xmi, etc), then this app will help you to find those repositories. Just like searching on GitHub, you sometimes want to see a few pages of search results so that you can find the item that best meets your needs. To satisfy that need, the ModelMine provides the best result based on search cafeterias.
