My experience studying computer science and HCDE has provided unique opportunities to apply my diverse interests in science, engineering, and the arts towards solving contemporary problems. Beyond college, I hope to pursue a Masters and/or PhD with a focus on computer science education, programming language research, and/or computational biology research.
I thrive on applying my passion for learning, problem-solving, and teaching to the various roles I've held in the field of engineering, from internships at local start-ups and a multi-national company (Expedia) to developing and teaching in the CSE department at the University of Washington. I have found my jack-of-all-trades nature to be especially useful in being able to approach problems in different applications, integrating different experiences and interests with one another. My future career goals involve teaching at a research-based university and/or pursing a full-time industry role in software engineering.
I seek opportunities that present challenge and intellectual reward, welcome curiosity and ultimately make a difference in society. In my free time, I’m either studying a new programming language, solving logic puzzles, or finding new things to learn, all with fresh coffee in hand and my four-legged friend at my side.
