I'm Geza Kovacs, a 3rd year Computer Science PhD student at Stanford supported by the NDSEG fellowship.
My advisor is Michael Bernstein in the Human-Computer Interaction group.
I'm interested in microlearning, MOOCs, and social computing.
I did my undergrad and masters in CS at MIT. See my resume for details on industry experience.
UNetbootin: LiveUSB Creator
UNetbootin is a graphical tool to create bootable live USB drives.
It allows users to install Ubuntu and other Linux distributions on tablets and netbooks without CD drives.
I built and maintain UNetbootin. It has been downloaded over 40 million times.
Wubi: Ubuntu Installer for Windows
Wubi is a tool that allows users to install Ubuntu from Windows.
It installs and boots Ubuntu from a file, so it does not require any repartitioning.
I built the original versions of Wubi, which is now part of Ubuntu.
You can find my other open-source projects on Github, Launchpad and Npm.
