About Me

I am a 3rd year Software Engineering student at The University of Waterloo. I am looking for winter 2022 internships and you can find my resume here!

I have previously interned at Nvidia, WindRiver, Thomson Reuters, and Sandvine as a Software Engineer.

I am also interested in Software Engineering Research and am working part-time at SWAG Lab, University of Waterloo with Prof. Mei Nagappan. You can find a list of my research publications below or in my CV or in Google Scholar.
