About Me

Lynbrook High Schools Varsity Baseball 2014 I'm currently a student at the University of Pennsylvania. My primary major is computer science, but I'm also pursuing a double major in mathematics. I'm a total math nerd, and much of my free time is spent musing about math and philosophy. The rest of my free time consists of music, photography, sports, and Super Smash Bros Melee.

I hold weekly office hours to answer students' questions and give feedback on homework. I also have the responsibility of grading weekly homework assignments and helping design course materials.
