I'm an undergrad studying computer science in the Allen School at the University of Washington.

I'm a researcher in the Allen School's Programming Languages & Software Engineering group.

Last summer, I worked in Alexa Machine Learning at Amazon.

I studied at ETH Zürich as a computer science exchange student.

I was a Software Engineering/Research Intern at Marchex. Before that, I was an Software Development Engineering Intern at Amazon in payment services.

I play violin in the UW Symphony Orchestra and the UW Chamber Music Club.
