:: 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.
