Aspiring full-stack software engineer

Hi, I am a year 3 computer science undergraduate at the National University of Singapore (NUS) who is passionate about full-stack development and cloud system administration. I am an IMDA scholar who has won various awards during my past diploma education and present university course.

I believe social and physical growth are just as important as academic development. I am the current president of the NUS Skating Club, and was a tutor for CS1010: Programming Methodology and CS2030: Programming Methodology 2 last year. I also train for endurance running during my free time.

Looking for internship opportunities in 2020

I am open for summer internship from May to August 2020 (4 months).

I can be reached at: evantay@comp.nus.edu.sg.
