From Luddy to Amazon

For three years at Luddy, Shayan Khokhar played a lead role in creating a knee-brace-based fitness tracker and mobile app called MuscleMemory. Conducted under the mentorship of Katie Siek in the Proactive Health Lab, his work earned him an undergraduate research award from IU.

The project also improved his programming, writing, and professional skills. He drew on those skills to land a highly competitive software development internship with Amazon, which led to a full-time job.
