My name is Sam Scudder and I am a graduate student in Computer Science at UC San Diego working in the Design Lab. I enjoy working on projects related to robotics, information visualization, and tangible user interfaces. In short, I strive to develop technologies that allow us to enjoy the simpler things in life.

Some Projects

Snow Wizzard

A program that uses Keras for TensorFlow to create higher resolution avalanche forecasts using weather data from the North American Mesoscale forecasts.

Fresh or Fishy

A distributed ledger system that uses ship location data to validate legally caught fish and track it as it moves through the supply chain.


A robot that encourages more students to use hand sanitizer amidst a global pandemic.

Food Pantry Destigmatization

A marketing strategy that leverages social media and inventory transparancy to encourage more students to make use of welfare resources when necessary.
