About Me

A portrait of me with the San Francisco skyline in the background.

I'm a junior at Stanford University majoring in Computer Science. My favorite programming projects are the ones which solve problems, whether they're problems faced by a few students in a class or problems faced by millions of people around the world.

Nowadays, I spend most of my time doing backend development and computer graphics. I would describe myself as a full-stack developer, where my definition of "stack" goes all the way from the kernel up to the front-end. I love systems-level programming to the point I have opinions on which assembly languages are better than others. When I'm working at a higher level, I enjoy functional programming and massively parallel computing.

I'm currently working at Facebook as a Production Engineering intern on the Feed and Stories Team. I'm also joining the Carta team at Stanford in the fall.
