Code. Skate. Run.

Hi, I am a year 2 Computer Science undergraduate at the National University of Singapore (NUS) who enjoys building websites, designing games and setting up servers.

I believe understanding the world is crucial in building purposeful technology and as a Residential College 4 Systems Citizen I have been able to deepen my understanding of the world.

I believe social and physical growth are just as important as academic development. I am currently the President of NUS Skating Club and also a Teaching Assistant for CS1010: Programming Methodology. I train for endurance running in my free time too.

Looking for Winter & Summer Internship

I am looking for internship/project opportunities this coming winter (9 Dec - 13 Jan) and summer breaks (12 May - 4 Aug). I can be reached at: evantay@comp.nus.edu.sg.
