About me

I am a sophomore at UT Austin studying Computer Science, Business Honors, and Management in the Turing Scholars program and the Business Honors Program. I'm a teaching assistant in the Department of Computer Science. In my free time, I am a volunteer deputy registrar (VDR) in Travis County (2018, 2019-2020) and Collin County (2019-2020), meaning I'm able to register people to vote. In summer 2020, I will be interning for Microsoft as a software engineering intern in Redmond, WA. In summer 2019, I interned for GoDaddy as a software development engineering intern in Kirkland, WA.
