Hello world and welcome to my website!
I received my B.S. at University of Michigan in Computer Science & Data Science and I will keep exploring my passion for research by entering a grad program. I love to find and solve problems using technology.
My academic interest lies in Distributed/Networked/Data-Intensive systems, my most recent research project is a novel data-driven controller design for developing applications in Cyber-Physical environments easily and elegantly. Paper is in submission!
My professional experience ranges from end to end in software technology. I have extensive project and internship experiences from frontend to backend, though currently I am much into backend, that doesn’t stop from me from creating cool websites and visualizations!
I am a big fan of entrepreneurship. I founded ReactiveXYZ, a creative app and web development studio when I was in high school. I was also a former co-founder and CTO of Backyard Parking (was acquired and is now Parqyt). At the moment, I am preparing for my next venture!
I also love to share and learn through open-sourcing. I was an early contributor to the Laravel framework. I have been constantly releasing source codes of tools and past projects that I wrote on my Github. Most recently, I am working on open-sourcing and maintaining Recore, a novel frontend development framework I was heavily involved in during my internship at Alibaba, and various other tools related to distributed systems.
Besides a technologist, I am also a certified barista, a certified hunter, a semi-aussie, a traveller and a ukulele rookie.
