I am a graduate student in the Computer Science and Engineering program at the University of Washington (based in Seattle). My current research focuses on crowdsourcing games for scientific discovery. My advisor is Zoran Popović.

Prior to University of Washington, I double-majored in Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Arizona. While there, I was active at the school’s Game Developers’ Club and Asian Music Club, leading them for a year and two years, respectively. In my downtime, I toy with the theory and the practices of game design, psychology, and art. Once in a while I write about my thoughts on those subjects as well.

I collect and maintain a list of interesting words.
