Hey! I'm Ramith ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ramith, smiling and waving at the camera

"Maybe so, maybe not, we'll see.."

I'm a Joint Post Baccalaureate Fellow affiliated to Wadduwage Lab and So Lab at Harvard University, co-advised by Dr. Dushan Wadduwage and Dr. Sergey Ovchinnikov.
I completed my bachelor's degree from University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

❝  I'm passionate towards using Machine Learning for Scientific Advancements (especially towards healthcare) while making sure these models are Robust, Interpretable and Equitable$^{\star}$ ❞.

$^{\star}$For the most part, I discovered this interest of mine through my volunteering efforts at Rotaract.

I started this blog when I was learning Signals and Systems back in 2018, and through this blog, I aspire to clearly write (+ develop visualizations)$^\dagger$ about concepts & advancements that awe me. Occasionally I record piano covers and try to sing songs. You can find them here. ๐ŸŽน

Undergrad from Sri Lanka?

I allocate ~1.5 hours per week to have 1:1 sessions with undergrads who wants any advice/guidance. If you are such an undergrad, you can schedule a time here.
After scheduling, pls add it to your calendar. There were some occasions when the person did not show up. Keep in mind that another person could also benefit from the slot you pick right now. ๐Ÿ˜„

Some Visualization Tools I've built
D* Lite

D* Lite Algorithm

As part of my internship, I wanted to implement the D* Lite algorithm, with dynamic obstacle creation aspect. (WebAssembly)
Convolutional NN Visualizer

Project Intelliscope

As part of a medical research, built a model visualization tool to get more intuition on what sort of learning has the model performed. (TensorSpace.js)
Multi-Core Processor

FPGA Group Project

To test our ISA and the functionality of any assembly code, I developed a tool to simulate the activity of each core. (p5.js)
