Education

  • BS in Computer Science and Entrepreneurship, Northeastern University

What are the brief specifics of your educational/career background?

I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Entrepreneurship from Northeastern in 2017. For my last year of my undergrad I was a teaching assistant for CS4500 and CS5500 and really enjoyed exploring DevOps while being able to help students. In addition to that, I spent 2 and a half years at State Street Global Advisors as a Co-Op Infrastructure Project Manager where I was fortunate enough to lead my own lifecycle migrations and upgrades.

What are the key aspects of your role at Northeastern? What do you enjoy most/find most interesting about what you do?

A key part of my role at Northeastern is ensuring that the infrastructure used for student projects is operational and adapted to each student’s needs from semester to semester. At the same time, I help coordinate the tutors and teaching assistants to ensure that we foster a fun and rigorous learning environment for our students.

What’s the most compelling thing to you about the research/work that goes on at the College?

One of the most compelling things that goes on at the college is the constant drive to research and explore areas that can help others with technology around the country and the world.

Where did you grow up/spend the most defining years of your child/young adulthood?

I spent my most defining years of my young adulthood in Munich, Germany where I also attended High School before coming to Northeastern.
