My name is Dev Dabke. I'm currently a student at Duke University studying Math and Computer Science. Born in India, and whisked away very quickly to the US, I spent the first several years of my life moving around with my mom and dad. They currently live in a small town in suburbia, with my cat, Spice.
I have always been fascinated with the way we engage with the world around us, especially through the lens of technology. Every day, we create and consume huge amounts of data and with that, we've done something wonderful: create data about our data. In that spirit, I am most interested in the intersection between beautiful art—that is, user interface—and even more beatiful math, especially with applications to data analytics.
I wish I could have claimed to have revolutionized the world of technology, but at the moment, I'm still learning. So far, I have had the privilege to work on a number of projects, from DailyDonator, a project that allows users to donate to charities by watching ads, to researching spectral graph theory with Prof. Xiaobai Sun. I'm also teaching a Web Development class this semester. You can find some more information about my projects below, plus a resume if you're so inclined.
When I'm not doing math things or web development things, I conduct the Duke Chamber Players and drink too much coffee. My current favorite piece is the Vivaldi Cello Sonata in E Minor. My favorite movie (much the chagrin of my mom, it has become a viewing tradition in my family) is A Few Good Men. My favorite book is Perloo the Bold, and has been for almost a decade.
