When I am not too busy doing research, I occasionally do fun things! You might find me doing some of the following around CMU.
I learned how to juggle as an undergrad with the Monash Club of Juggling and Firetwiling (MCJAF). Nowadays, when the weather is nice, you might find me juggling outside with CMU's juggling club, the Masters of Flying Objects. This photo is from our act in the SCS Day 2019 talent show, with Mark Gillespie.
Every year the School of Computer Science puts on a musical revue in the Fall semester, and a full length musical in the Spring semester. In Spring 2019, I played Freddy in the School's production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. This photo shows our depiction of Master of the House from Les Misérables in the Fall 2018 revue.
As an undergrad, I represented Monash University in the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) (56th place, 2017), and other competitions including IEEEXTreme (Equal 1st place, 2017). These days I focus primarily on coaching. I was formerly the coach of the Monash University Programming Team, and am currently a judge and problem setter for the South Pacific Programming Contests. I occasionally still participate in contests such as Google Code Jam, Facebook Hacker Cup, and the Yandex Algorithm Contest.
