I have completed a B.Sc. and M.Sc degree from the University of British Columbia (UBC) located in Vancouver, Canada. My undergraduate degree is in Computer Science, Microbiology and Immunology with Co-op and my master's degree is in Computer Science. I completed my master's degree UBC's Computer Science department under the supervison of Dr. Rachel Pottinger. My research interests were focused around the role of metadata in data usability. You can find my thesis here.

After graduation, I worked on developing educational material for CPSC 100 (Computational Thinking) as well as for outreach events to students in grades 6 to 12. At the same time, I started transitioning into teaching in the UBC Computer Science department. To date, I have taught the following courses (some of them multiple times): CPSC 100 (Computational Thinking), CPSC 103 (Introduction to Systematic Program Design), CPSC 210 (Software Construction), and CPSC 304 (Introduction to Relational Databases).

Interests

Professionally, I am very interested in the areas of data management, data usability, educational technologies, and digital health.

Personally, I enjoy learning trivia tidbits, cooking, baking, reading, and am an avid badminton player. Recently, I have taken up photography to try and learn some artistic skills.
