Profile Picture

I am a software developer that enjoys bringing new ideas to life. I like to solve complex problems with innovative solutions using cutting-edge tools. I like to ship clean, modular, testable code.

I am also a graduate student in bioinformatics at The University of British Columbia where I build tools to make bioinformatics more accessible to all scientists. I welcome you to view a detailed breakdown of all my projects.

I program mostly in Python and Javascript, creating fully functional applications that make my research methodologies available to the public. There is also a special place in my heart for the first programming language I learned, R.

I have always had a passion for technology, and in my spare time I like to hack things together. I also enjoy giving back to community by contributing to open-source projects.

  • 🏊‍ Swimming
