Academic Projects of Yesteryear

These are project papers from classes and publications (in reverse-chronological order) that I occasionally still refer to, and were previously hosted on my MIT webpage. I'm no longer on a research track (or a student for that matter), so these will become less relevent over time. Email me if you have questions.
