I am a Computer Science major with minors in Mathematics and Business at Brandeis University who is highly driven by the prospect of working in a team to develop software with real-world applications.


About me

I am a passionate and dedicated programmer currently pursuing a Computer Science major with minors in Mathematics and Business at Brandeis University. Throughout my academic journey, I have immersed myself in the world of full-stack development, gaining expertise in a wide range of programming languages, frameworks and databases, such as Java, Python, JavaScript, Node.js, Express.js, React.js, Flask, MongoDB, SQL, pandas, and Bash. What truly fuels my enthusiasm is the opportunity to work in a team to create groundbreaking solutions that address pressing issues and drive positive change. I firmly believe that the exchange of ideas and perspectives leads to the creation of software with real-world impact. Together, we can bring our collective expertise to develop transformative solutions that push the boundaries of what technology can achieve.
