What do you do professionally?

Why do you TA for OMSCS?

One of my favorite things about TAing is helping students find their lightbulbs. We’ve all been there: lost, frustrated, and stressed out. Sometimes it is just a fresh perspective, code review, or even multi-day journey, but it is incredibly rewarding when they can finally say, “I got it!”

What is your advice for future OMSCS students?

Find what you are passionate about, and then go above and beyond, whenever possible, on all related projects and courses. You can change your mind a million times on what you want to do, but go all in when you do.

What is your preferred programming language?

My favorites are C++ and Python.
