Since I took my first computer programming class in high school, I’ve been interested in the development and efficiency of software. To me, being able to understand how complex computing systems function is liberating, given that the whole of society relies on the programs written by dedicated and talented software engineers on a daily basis.
Although I have no set-in-stone career path at the moment, I am interested in operating systems development, data science, and desktop and mobile applications development. Whether it be at the outset of my career or later on, I would like to start a company or venture of sorts. However, I think that, above all, what is most important to me is seeing that whatever I’m doing will change some aspect of the world around me in a positive way.
Here at Stevens, I’ve been involved with the IEEE Stevens Chapter, the Software Engineering Club, and the Stevens Chapter of Phi Beta Lambda.
