Chicago, Illinois, United States

I'm a (soon-to-be graduating) undergraduate studying computer science at the University of Chicago. Currently, I'm learning about operating systems and computer security.

At the University, I've been a research assistant involved in building the Sketch-n-sketch tool. Imagine if you could manipulate some piece of graphics/UI and have the underlying code update itself for you in real time. Now imagine if you could go the other way, from the code to graphics as well. That's what we're doing with Sketch-n-sketch!

I also currently work as the team lead of the internship program at UChicagoTech, the University's Center for Ventures & Technology Development, where I curate and analyze marketing data.

On my free time, I kayak on Lake Michigan when the weather's pleasant. I occasionally try my hand at painting and making other art pieces. I'm also a big fan of tabletop roleplaying games like D&D, Pathfinder, and Diplomacy.
