About me

I'm a junior at Binghamton University double majoring in computer science and math. I am also currently an undergraduate research assistant in Binghamton University's department of computer science. In addition to coding, I possess business experience from a couple of internships including familiarity with excel, patent filing, and the NIST framework. I started learning how to code seven years ago during high school. I also have a strong interest in solving equations and puzzles. This semester I am working with four other computer science students taking software engineering to create a new timesheet system for student association workers to log hours at our school.
