In Summer 2018 I was a research intern at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA. My mentor was Ranveer Chandra and I worked on next-generation soil sensing in the Farmbeats project. We all got to demo out work to Bill Gates himself, and in October it was featured on his blog. There was even a video made where I made a few brief appearances showcasing our backscatter tag and digging holes for experiments.
