Hello! My name is Lucas Zhang. I'm a creative and analytical software developer who also happens to love making things look pretty. I've been interning, teaching, taking classes, and building all sorts of projects, hoping to gain more practical experience in my field as well as explore any new ones.
Right now, I'm a computer science major at UNC Chapel Hill. But outside of schoolwork, I spend much of my time interning at places like SAS and Duke University. I also taking an active role in my Computer Science Department by doing things such as Directing the Carolina Data Challenge Hackathon and serving on the development team of Computer Science for Social Good.
Cloud Intern @SAS
Work with a team to develop a ReactJS framework for building Risk web applications on the SAS Viya cloud platform. Developed using Gerrit and JIRA in an Agile environment to track and submit issues and stories.
Research Assistant @Duke Radiation Oncology
Work on the Varian Project at Duke Radiation Oncology with Dr. Jackie Wu and Dr. Yang Sheng among others. Currently developing a desktop application using ElectronJS and ReactJS to display the processed data outputted by the project's machine learning algorithm.
Here are some examples of the projects that I've worked on in the past
few years. They include many applications and projects that I
developed on my own time as well as some assignments that I feel
particularly proud of.
See more in my Github.
This project is an in-progress attempt to convert and compile the C++ code I wrote for COMP475: 2D Computer Graphics to WebAssembly. The code will theoretically be able to run at near native speeds while still being cross platform. I also plan on improving the code with multithreading and an interactive UI in the future.
As the Director of Development for the 2021 Carolina Data Challenge, I designed and created the public facing website for the hackathon. It leverages Docker containers to run a ReactJS frontend and Strapi backend CMS. All of this is routed through an NGINX proxy container.
This application takes DICOM files as input and interprets the arrays of bitmaps to the render the 3 orthogonal views along with their Dose and Structure overlays. The DICOM files are generated through the research of Dr. Jackie Wu and Dr. Yang Sheng at Duke Radiation Oncology.
