Projects
* At NVIDIA, I work on CUDA profiling tools, including **nvprof**, the **NVIDIA Visual Profiler**, and the **CUPTI** library.

* Open-source libraries * [**EasyTab**](https://github.com/ApoorvaJ/EasyTab) is a single-header multiplatform library for drawing-tablet input. * [**gl_lite**](https://github.com/ApoorvaJ/Papaya/blob/ec8baaa866b74a6469ec2640f5960f55ec234805/src/libpapaya/gl_lite.h) is a single-header lightweight OpenGL loader. * [**tiny-jpeg-rs**](https://github.com/ApoorvaJ/tiny-jpeg-rs) is a ported JPEG-encoding library written in the Rust language.

* [**Papaya**](https://github.com/ApoorvaJ/Papaya) is a cross-platform image editor.

I spend a substantial amount of my free time developing this project. I periodically spin out useful code from this project into small libraries and release them into the public domain.

* [**Socioball**](http://socioballthegame.com) is an isometric puzzle game. In each puzzle, you have to get one or multiple balls from start to finish by placing missing action tiles along the ball’s path. Socioball uses steganography and hides data inside images, effectively using Twitter as a level sharing medium. Socioball is available on iOS and Android.

I was the solo programmer in the two-person team that made the game. I also created most of the art. Socioball is made in Unity.
