Mohammad Sahal has proven himself to be intelligent, independent, and self motivated. He has skillfully organized and led a working group in developing a pragmatic BCI for use by people living with ALS in order to increase their independence. Through the course of this project he demonstrated tenacity, ingenuity and a willingness to work hard. This work has been difficult but Mr. Sahal was up to the challenges. On a personal level, I am thankful for his continued interest and sincerity. He is a pleasure to work and I look forward to his continuing with us on the project
Mohammad was a teaching assistant in the Freshman Design Sequence for a year. In that time, he served ten student development teams as their scrum master and mentor. He patiently taught students how to use the command line interface with git for version control and coached teams through problem solving in areas as diverse as Arduino in a Robotics application to Android Studio to Full Stack Web Development. All of the teams he mentored had a completed prototype or proof of concept at the end of the sequence. His dedication to his teams is admirable.
I had the pleasure of supervising Sahal at K&S for 6 months during his second co-op. As a co-op on the Computer Vision team, he was instrumental in helping the team analyze field data quickly with a set of python scripts he wrote for parsing, analyzing, and visualizing log files and images. Sahal also quickly and independently came up to speed on image processing basics. This allowed him to research, implement, and present an algorithm for foreign material detection that he compared with a more basic technique. I’m confident that Sahal will contribute meaningfully to any team he joins, as he did for ours.
