+ CS 106A & AP Head TA at Stanford University Department of Computer Science September 2018 - Present

I'm the head TA for CS 106AP: Programming Methodologies in Python, Stanford's largest undergraduate class with typical enrollments of around 500 students. I manage a staff of over 40 undergraduate section leaders, work closely with the professor to decide on course content and logistics, hold guest and exam review lectures, and hold my own office hours. Previously, I was the Head TA for CS 106A, which was a similar course taught in Java.

Worked on signal processing for speech recognition, deep learning for language understanding and designing and building a backend system to integrate various TensorFlow models with data collection pipelines.

+ CS106 Section Leader & TA for Stanford University Department of Computer Science Jan 2017 - June 2018

TA (Teaching Assistant) for Stanford’s introductory Computer Science 2-course sequence. Teach a section of 10-12 students, grade homework and exams, hold office hours and interactive grading sessions for students. Courses are in Java and C++. Have given multiple guest lectures and written new assignments for the class, alongside autograders for these assignments. Also helping to train new TAs.
