Olin College of Engineering

💼 experience

I graduated Olin College of Engineering in 2017 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Engineering with a self-defined concentration in Computing and a GPA of 3.92.

What does that silly degree title mean? It means I majored in generalized engineering - for me, a synthesis of design thinking, systems analysis, and engineering modeling classes - and I specialized in computing - that is, specifically software not hardware.

I also minored in teaching & education, and spent a lot of time at school thinking about systems of education and how they could be better, and doing formal research on what it means to train teachers.
