Shorbojeet Das

Welcome to my online Portfolio

I am Shorbojeet Das, I graduated from Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles with Master of Science in Computer Science in Spring 2016. I earned my Bachelors degree (with Honors) in Computer Science from Shri Shankaracharya Technical Campus, Bhilai, India.

I interned at Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corporation during the Summer of 2015 as a Software Engineer for the WinApps Team.

My areas of interest include Software Development, Graphics and Game Development.

I am currently working on personal projects with focus on gesture recognition, and not looking for employment opportunities.

 Ongoing Projects

Personal Project

Character Recognition using Gesture Input
  • Computer Vision centered project
  • Implementing the initial framework

Completed Projects

Open Source Search Engine (Java, SOLR, php)

CSCI 572: Information Retreival and Web Search Engines
  • Implemented a crawler using the crawler4j library to crawl a website based on user's input.
  • Collected information from the crawled webpages
  • Wrote a submethod to download a local copy of the webpage which match the input criteria
  • Implemented pageRank algorithm to enhance the relevancy of search results.
  • Incorporated Solr to index the downloaded files properly, and to have a uniform query result format.
  • Implemented auto complete and auto spell corrector/suggestor for the search box.

 PrimeEngine - PhysxEngine (C++)

 CSCI 522: Game Engine Development

Adding features to USC GamePipe's PrimeEngine to implement Physics, Environmental Blending, Animation State Machines, Behavior State Machines, Shader Programming and many more.

  • One of the top three projects selected to be showcased at USC Gamepipe Showcase Fall 2015.
  • Implemented dynamic contact detection points. These points are then used to calculate and pre-update the scene.
  • Added Collision Resolver: implementation to keep track of the object movements and update the root of the scene.
  • Implemented momentum conservation, inertia, angular velocity, friction, gravity and wind.
  • Successfully tested and ported to XBOX, steady frame rate of 60FPS (PC) and ~55FPS(XBOX)
  • Future work on porting engine to GPU and execute on parallel threads for faster computation.
  • Demo 1 | Demo 2

 SpaceRTS (UNREAL Engine - C++)

 CSCI 524: Networked Artificial Intelligence

SpaceRTS is a networked game that was developed using ©Unreal Engine 4.

  • Real Time Strategy Game developed using Unreal Engine 4.
  • Improved enemy movement mechanisms utilizing A* as path finding algorithm.
  • Enhanced the user gameplay experience by implementing enemy AI with an efficiency of 60%.

Zillow Android Application (Web/Android Programming)

CSCI 571: Web Technologies Project

The application can be used to search for property details. The app fetched information from the ©Zillow servers. The servers responded with a XML document. This document was parsed using a PHP script hosted on the cloud using Amazon's AWS Elastic BeanStalk.

  • Developed a web and android application that allows the user to find latest property information using Zillow.
  • Enhanced the user experience using CSS3, bootstrap framework and jQuery features.
  • Improved search technique by integrating the search box with autocomplete feature.
  • Integrated Facebook API to allow users to post the property data on Facebook.

3D Voxel Team Project (C++)

 CSCI580: 3D Graphics and Rendering Project

The project was two fold, we implemented a Ray Tracer with Toon Shading whereas the second part was Enviroment Mapping.

  • Developed a Graphics Rendering Library in C++ which reads a given data file and parses it to render images.
  • Programmed a Ray Tracer and enhanced its visual appeal by designing a parallel toon shading algorithm.
  • Implemented triangle rasterizer using Barycentric algorithm and Z-Buffering.
  • Devised methods to perform various transformations of 3D objects.
  • Successfully implemented Flat, Gouraud and Phong shading algorithms.
  • Performed image texturing and anti-aliasing on images.
