About

Greetings.

I am Pi, an aspiring computer engineer and a freelance software developer. I currently plan to study Computer Engineering and Chinese Language at New York University Abu Dhabi on full scholarship. I have the intention to create accessible technology tools, which provides tangible benefits for the people, upon graduation.

Skills : In term of hard skills, I specialize in various forms of web development, computer programming and graphic design. Learning these skills out of curiosity have led me to work on multiple projects which can be seen in my Portfolio, Personal Projects, or on my Github.

Hobbies : I find many things interesting. In my leisure time, I love to create artworks and animations in both traditional and digital methods, play the guitar and bamboo flute, compose music, experiment with electronics and create useful tools for the community.

Credentials : I have been named as one of the top 75 GitHub Developers in Yangon Myanmar region, by githubstars.com. I won the Harvard Book Prize from the Harvard Club of Hong Kong in 2018. I received the Kiwanis Service Award in 2020 for devising innovative solutions to address community service needs.

Research Interests : If I were to remain in academia in future, my research interest would be in Swarm Intelligence and Robotics.

Writings : I have recorded and reflected two years of my high school experience (2018 - 2020) in Hong Kong on my blog.

Should you have any enquiries, please don't hesitate to drop me a message via the Contact tab.


Yours sincerely,


π
