My name is Brett Pelkey, and am currently working towards a B.A. in Computer Science degree at New Mexico State University. I have 4 years of experience with Android programming and launched a long-term project, Flooid Lingo , on the Google Play Store in the Summer of 2015. I am self-motivated and enjoy working on personal programming projects. In my free time I enjoy to snowboard and research new upcoming technology.

New Mexico State University• May 2017
I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts Computer Science degree at NMSU. This Spring I am starting my last semester and expect to graduate in May of 2017. My cumulative GPA is a 3.71 following Fall semester 2016. I have obtained Honors Student and Crimson Scholar at the beginning of Fall semester 2015. The previous seven semesters my GPA is a 3.99 with Dean's list and have a 4.0 in my core classes for the Computer Science department. I am a member of SiC (Students in Computing) and the Chess Club at NMSU.

New Mexico State University iCredits (internship)• June 2015 - May 2017
NMSU iCredits is an Epicenter for Research and Training in Smart Grids. As an Undergraduate Research Assistant I have helped build a Java Applet (see work below) to monitor and predict disturbances in a Phasor Measurement Unit. I have also gotten familiar with manipulating text files (txt, csv, etc) that contain large amounts of data. I have experienced using classification algorithms such as kNN and SVM as well as others in many multiple programming languages.
Los Alamos National Laboratory• May 2016 - September 2016
At Los Alamost National Laboratory I was tasked with developing a Java program to fetch readings from multiple sensors and insert into and Oracle Database every minute. These values were then aggregated for each sensor nightly to keep a daily log of high, low, avg and others for each sensor. I communicated directly with the client to obtain requirements and feedback to ensure the program was working correctly.
