Actively seeking entry-level software development / ML engineering positions starting in Dec 2022!

About me

I’m pursuing my Master of Science in Computer Science at CS department, Carnegie Mellon University with QPA 4.16/4.33 and I’ll graduate in Dec 2022. During my time at CMU, I did research with Dr. Andrew Crotty and Prof. Andy Pavlo on self-driving databases, and I interned at Hudson River Trading (HRT) this summer. I earned my bachelor's degree in CS with highest honors from Yuanpei College, Peking University. I possess a background in both systems and ML engineering.

At HRT I wrote a fully functional resource reservation service and a skeleton for a market simulator. Before my master's study with straight A's, I worked full-time at Tencent WeChat, an IM app with 1.2 billion DAU in China, for a year as a full-time backend developer. During my time there, I wrote over 50k lines of production code in C++ and developed many backend skills such as server development and optimization. I previously completed internships at Apple and Megvii (Face++) where I launched computer vision algorithms to products and gained experience in both engineering and machine learning. I formerly published a paper on computer vision at CMU.

With a mixed background in both CS and AI, I came to realize the huge gap between doing theoretical research and launching a realistic program. My experiences ignited my desire to develop practical systems as an SWE for my career, realizing my self-worth through system development and deployment. As a future engineer, developing usable solutions for corporations gives me a real sense of achievement.

I'm actively seeking entry-level SWE/MLE positions starting Dec 2022. If you're interested, please don't hesitate to contact me.
