Suyash Kumar

Engineer. Designer. Dreamer.

Hi there, I'm Suyash


I'm a student at Duke University where I study Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science as a double major. I love to design and create--I enjoy spending time developing software, tinkering at the electronics workbench, or working on projects at Duke's homegrown makerspace (or machine shop). I do everything from full-stack web application development to connected medical device design. I'm really passionate about using innovative technologies to create solutions that are smarter, cheaper, and more accessible than ever before.

I'm a Creator

I'm interested in and pursue web/software development, electronics hacking, and graphic design.


Web Design

I enjoy bringing ideas to life via full stack web development. I'm always learning more, and currently use Node.js or Flask for server-side development and AngularJS for client-side development (also exploring ReactJS). I've built things like cloud based data analytics platforms and connected device web applications (see Projects below for more).

Development

I enjoy the thrill of making things happen via software development. I am very proficient with:

  • Java
  • Python
  • C
  • Matlab
  • LaTeX
  • HTML/CSS/Javascript
and am familiar with a whole lot more (including everything from shell scripting to OpenSCAD). I've been writing software and playing around with computers since the 5th grade and love working on side projects. I'm a recent VIM convert and absolutely love it.

Tech & Electronics

I like to stay plugged into the latest technologies--from 3D printing to IoT tech. I also really enjoy designing and building electronic devices. I hack around with ATMega328 series microcontrollers, spark cores, Raspberry Pis, and whatever else I can get my hands on. I'm a technical consultant for Duke's Innovation Studio, am the CTO of Duke University Union, am the president of Duke's Smart Home, and find many other ways to get my tech/programming fix at Duke.

Design

I'm a big fan and student of elegant design principles. Be it as an engineer, scientist, or artist. As a multimedia project studio consultant (and now student manager) at Duke, I strive to inspire students and their projects using multimedia tools
