I am an undergraduate at UCSD with hopes to pursue a role in SWE. I am double majoring in Math-Computer Science and Cognitive Science and enjoy learning about philosophy. I recently joined The Computing for Social Good Lab at UCSD where I am researching mental burnout and problem gambling on social media using NLP.
I am currently looking for a 2023 internship positions as a software engineer. Please check my resume for links to my past experiences.
I am interested in investigating the applications machine learning techniques and its intersection with various fields, particularly NLP. I see computers’ knowledge of human language as the next big interface for humans to utilize computing power more naturally. I look forward to computers gaining a semantic understanding of language. I am also passionate about the application of simulation in developing robust systems. I am currently looking into using Unity simulations to accelerate software development on aerial vehicles. Simulations can be integrated into automated testing pipelines and used for human sanity-check verification during rapid development cycles.
