About me

I’m Mei, it's nice to meet you!

I'm a junior full stack engineer bursting with passion for great technology innovation! In the past, I've designed a front-end platform for robots, maintained chihaya, a integrateable peer to peer tracker for developers, and hosted a note sharing service for students. I love building great server infrastructure and working with low level programming to ensure that the back end feels just as beautiful as the front end can be. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to work on a project together or are looking for great engineers for your team! You can email me at [email protected]

Professional Experience

Site Reliability Engineering Intern, University of Utah CHPC

March 2019 ─ Present

At the University of Utah’s Center for High Performance Computing, we provide research institutions with large-scale cloud infrastructure and parallel computing resources. I diagnose and troubleshoot packet loss within our networks, implement new automated system deployment tools, and ensure the health and proper configuration of our computing clusters.

Full Stack Developer, NUWA Robotics

May 2017 ─ August 2018

Using React and other JavaScript libraries, I built the foundational framework for our online content creator. The content creator allows users to edit videos and time robot interactions with the video. For example, at 3:14 minutes in, the robot might spin around as the characters in the video spin around. Users don't need to know any programming to use the content creator, as all functions can be executed through the visual interface. I coordinated with our API team to allow the high level JS user interface to interact with low level embedded system robot movements.

Education

University of Utah

B.S. Computer Science and Electrical Engineering / January 2019 ─ Present

I am a board member for HackTheU, Utah's largest hackathon. I am also the treasurer for our IEEE chapter and the software lead for our university robotics club, RoboUtes.

Utah Valley University

A.S General Sciences / August 2014 ─ May 2017

While at Utah Valley University, I founded an artificial intelligence club. I was also the editor for our school newspaper and an active participant in the cyber security club. I graduated in the top 20% of my graduating class.

A Taste of My Projects

Anime Community

I manage infrastructure for a video site with over 100k registered users and 15k active monthly users. The website also serves as social media platform for anime fans. Multiple servers are networked through a kubernetes cluster to provide users with reliable connection internationally. I wrote a peer to peer tracker to facilitate deployment, as well as a dedicated CDN and image host for our website. SQL databases are snapshotted daily to ensure data is reliably backed up and servers can be deployed seamlessly.


Native Proxying through wget

I have actively been maintaining wget, the most popular terminal webpage fetching client for unix systems. Most recently, I have been adding features that will allow users to use a flag to fetch webpages through a proxy rather than configuring system-wide proxy networking. Wget is written in C, and I’ve written numerous tests to ensure my code is efficient and bug free.
