In May 2017, I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with dual bachelors in Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics / Operations Research.

During my undergrad, I participated in three internships:

  • Software engineering at Reno-based medical data analytics company Soar BioDynamics
  • Software engineering in the Supply Chain Optimization Technologies organization at Amazon
  • Data Engineering at New York and Reno-based B2B data analytics company Bombora

During my undergrad, I also participated in competative coding at my own university and intercollegiately at the ICPC regionals.

In my junior and senior years, I gained leadership experience by serving as the secretary of our chapter of Tau Beta Pi, and vice president and then president of our chapter of the ACM.

Since graduating, I moved to Seattle, WA and worked for almost a year and half as a full-time software development engineer at Amazon, again in Supply Chain Optimiazation Technologies.

As of October 2018, I am a software engineer at Google in the Security & Privacy organization in Kirkland, WA.
