What’s your background? Tell me your story.

My last two years there I worked as a lab admin in the computer science department. I graduated in May 2020 with a bachelor’s in computer science and a minor in mathematics.

I work on building the components that interact with what people actually see on their device.

How do you do your job differently?

Unlike what most people outside of technology think, software engineering is a highly collaborative field. We need to make sure all of the team members on a project are in sync. I like to document what I work on and keep all meeting notes to share it with the team to not only serve as a reference when needed but also to help future team members understand the process of how particular decisions on a project were made.

What are you most passionate about?

Outside of work, I like to spend time playing guitar. I am not really good at it but it makes me happy so I continue to do it. Traveling is also important to me. Of course, 2020 was a different year but I look forward to when I can travel places again.
