I enjoy hiking, photography, and being outdoor in general. I'm a food enthusiast. Professionally, I obtained a PhD in Computer Science also from Carnegie Mellon University under the supervision of Guy Blelloch and Anupam Gupta. Before that, I received a B.S. in Computer Science with a double major in Math also from Carnegie Mellon University. In my past life, I have worked at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center as a research staff member (read: research scientist). I have also co- developed and taught 15-210: Parallel and Sequential Data Structures and Algorithms.
Here's my public GPG key if you need it.
