:: WORK EXPERIENCE ::
C and Assembly Programming TA
WSU Vancouver, Spring 2017
As a grader, I was responsible for validating output of students' programs, and manually reviewing their code printouts to provide feedback on correctness, conceptual understanding, and style.
Research Assistant - Twitter Project
WSU Vancouver, Summer 2016
I performed exploratory statistical analysis on a large dataset of tweets using Python, pandas, and Hadoop MapReduce jobs. My main task was to write reusable scripts to compare word frequencies over time between tweets with and without a specified hashtag, and format their combined output for easy visualization using Matplotlib.
Junior 2D Game Design TA
DigiPen ProjectFUN, Summer 2013
I supervised and assisted in instruction for a summer workshop on game design
and development to a class of about thirty 4th to 7th grade students. The goal
of the course was for each student to build a simple game using one of DigiPen's
proprietary C++ frameworks.
The majority of the students had no prior experience programming, so along with coordinating lesson plans with the primary instructor and other assistants, I was responsible for actively reviewing students' work to ensure that they would successfully reach milestones for their projects.
