About

I'm a software engineer with a passion for beautiful design and elegant code. I am also intrigued by the complexity of massive datasets. My research interests are in machine learning and deep learning.
Hi, I AM

A fourth-year student at University of Waterloo. I was a Quantitative Research intern at Citadel, a SWE intern at Uber, and a data scientist intern at LinkedIn.

A BIT GEEKY

I love new technology! I have experience with Python, R, Pig, Spark, C++, Java, SQL, Node.js, SQL, MEAN stack. You can check out my work here.

A BIT ARTSY

I like design as well. I’m comfortable with HTML, SCSS, Jade, Haml, Javascript, Backbone.js, Compass. I play with Photoshop a lot.

Interests

The prime reason for living in this world is discovery.

Music

I learned piano for 8 years, Chinese Zither for 3 years and guitar for a year. I learn seriously, but play for fun.

Arts

I love drawing and enjoy all museums and galleries. //I don't enjoy Art History lectures as much though. Shh.

Photography

I like to capture amazing moments in our lives, because they are all impossible to reproduce.

Travel

I am a backpacker, and a HUGE travel fan. I love experiencing different cultures (and food) and meeting new people.

Outdoor

Love hiking, camping and climbing. I am also a PADI AOW scuba diver. Fun fact: I hiked 128km in 4 days in Tibet.

Startup

Entrepreneurship enthusiast! I learned from every failure :)
