About Me

I am a software engineer at Microsoft. I graduated summa cum laude from Amherst College with a Bachelor of Arts in computer science and mathematics and received the Computer Science Prize. At Amherst, I was involved in the Amherst College Data* Mammoths research and learning group, where I worked as a research assistant under the leadership of Matteo Riondato. Prior to research, I worked for the Department of Computer Science as both a teaching assistant and peer tutor for multiple computer science courses. I was the president of the Amherst College Computer Science Club.

Outside of academics, I have held leadership positions in Amherst’s Asian Students Association as Co-Chair of the Asian Men’s Collective and as Treasurer of the Chinese Students Association. As for hobbies, I grew up playing ice hockey, tennis, rugby, cello, and guitar!
