Hi! I'm Prangon, an incoming fourth year Computer Engineering student at Stony Brook University. I am passionate about bridging project management, software engineering, and embedded systems design to build user-focused hardware and software products.
Currently, I am an IoT Data Analyst at Enertiv, where I am empowering building owners with data-driven insights by expanding our Internet-of-Things (IoT) data collection network.
Additionally, I am an Instructor in Stony Brook University's Science and Technology Entry Program, where I teach introductory programming to underrepresented minority and low-income high school students.
Last year, I was the President and a Project Manager of the Stony Brook Robotics Team, Stony Brook's largest engineering design team, where I led a group of over 50 students across three engineering teams in competition-based engineering projects.
Here are a few things I am experienced with:
Organization. Time management. Discipline. In my projects, I strive to apply these fundamental concepts to create understanding, to break down tasks, to set priorities and to collaboratively develop an action plan to meet all the goals.
With a strong foundation in Computer and Software Engineering, I am passionate about the design and development of hardware and software that can meet user needs, provide a seamless user experience and have incredible functionality.
Leadership isn't just managing people; it's inspiring, motivating, and mentoring your team so that they can perform at their best. In my leadership roles, I endeavor to empower my team, to lead by example and to maintain a sense of accountability.
A fully-autonomous ground vehicle project, focused on developing a robot capable of traversing simulated urban street environments for the 2020 International Autonomous Robot Racing Competition.
A remote-controlled and autonomous-capable Mars Rover, built for the 2019 University Rover Challenge. The rover utilizes computer vision and a multi-part algorithm to traverse rough terrain.
