Summer Student
Jul. 2012 - Oct. 2012
Summer student at UBC LMRS Lab. Studied electron microscopy and vacuum systems. The objective was to replace some old electronic modules of an scanning electron microscope to improve performance
I like to spend my time doing what I like:

Maps (Europe Edition)
Release Date: Jan. 2014
Maps (Europe Edition) is a revolutionary maps application on Windows 8/8.1. Categorized points of interest locations and details, turn-by-turn directions, and comprehensive search for all European locations are a few features of this app

Maps (North America Edition)
Release Date: Jan. 2014
Maps (North America Edition) is a revolutionary maps application on Windows 8/8.1. Categorized points of interest locations and details, turn-by-turn directions, and comprehensive search for all North American locations are a few features of this app
"... [I] wanted to share [Bardia's] success story and how he took the software, learned from it, built on top of it and published to the Windows Store" -Mark Arteaga, 10-Year Microsoft MVP

OpenGLCube
Dec. 2014
OpenGLCube is where sensor fusion and OpenGL ES come together to produce a cool application. In this simple application, a colorful cube is controlled by rotating the phone. Source code available on Github

ChairTrax
Sep. 2014 - Apr. 2015
ChairTrax is an Android App that facilitates wheelchair training by tracking real-time position and orientation of a wheelchair, and streaming it to an Android device over Bluetooth. Link to the proof of concept video

Note-able
TBD 2015
Note-able revolutionizes the way students take notes. More information to be published later ...
