More about me


I am a third year student at the University of British Columbia currently pursuing a Bachelors of Applied Science in Computer Engineering. My academic studies include software development in both low level and high level languages, microcomputer and operating system design, along with team oriented project courses.

In addition to my formal academic studies, I am pro-actively learning by taking advantage of some free online courses to study topics which interest me as soon as possible.

I greatly value self-learning, in my early youth I dedicated my spare time to teach myself software development through reverse engineering other people’s open source projects; I would break down the program, study certain sections of it, observe how each modules interact with each other, and re-assemble a modified version of the code to build on their original ideas!

I also enjoyed studying more recent algorithms from scientific research papers, particularly those that already provide some pseudo-code to get a quick start with.
