I am a graduate student majoring in computer science, focusing on software development and UX research. During my master's, I learn modern practical development skills by taking courses like Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Security Service. In addition, I was a teaching assistant for the course, Software Studio, which includes topics of web applications and modern Android development.

Currently, I am working with the team of Flora to help with Android version development and UX research. Other than technical skills, I am an active learner and experienced in working with cross-functional teams based on my interdisciplinary education/work background.
