Joint honours Mathematics and Computer Science
I was born in Canada, but at the age of eight, my family and I moved to Raleigh, NC. I graduated from Athen's Drive High School in 2008 and moved back to Canada to attend McGill University. I am currently an undergraduate, pursuing a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science.
In the summer of 2010, I worked on the project Phylo
- A Human Computing Framework for Comparative Genomics. Last summer I worked as a program manager intern for Microsoft in the AdCenter Delivery Engine. I intend to work fulltime at Microsoft upon completion of my degree.
