Nashir recently finished working on a NASA design project with fellow community college students. He and his team traveled to Johnson Space Center in Houston, where he was the test conductor and taught NASA divers how to use the team's device for testing in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory.


Nashir has various projects on his GitHub. Currently he is working on building an application that takes images of Sudoku puzzles, reads them into a program using OpenCV, and then solves them using a recursive backtracking approach. He is also working on teleop and autonomous programming for his robotics team at Santa Monica College.


Nashir has experience working with the Lego Mindstorms EV3, the FIRST Robotics hardware (including the Roborio), VEX robotics hardware and control modules, the raspberry pi, and he also built a desktop computer to triple boot Windows, Ubuntu, and Hackintosh.
