About Me

Hey, what's up, hello

Welcome to my humble website. My name is Edmund and I come from a bubble called Johns Creek near Atlanta, GA. I'm currently a Junior studying Computer Science at UC Berkeley. Computer science is a passion of mine, and I find it amazing what one can do with it. What's even more amazing is technology's growing importance in today's society; my lifelong dream is to make my mark on this technological revolution through my own startup.

I spent the past summer working as a Software Engineering Intern at Intuit. I was doing some backend and iOS, extending Quickbooks Self Employed's mileage tracking feature. This next summer I'm excited to take on my dream internship with Facebook! My CS experience extends beyond just industry. I've worked as a teaching assistant for CS 170 (Algorithms) and CS 61B (Data Structures), my favorite classes at Berkeley.

Contrary to popular belief, not all programmers like to sit in front of their laptop all day. Some of my favorite outdoor activites include hiking to enjoy the beautiful views nature has to offer and attending concerts/raves. I've recently picked up interest in photography, hip hop dance, and basketball!

I believe that everyone has an amazing life story, and I would love to hear about yours. Feel free to message me through the contact form or connect with me through one of the social media icons at the bottom of the page.

Projects

HouseMate

During my sophomore year of college I noticed that not all my housemates were pulling their weight in doing chores around the apartment. My solution was HouseMate, an iOS app that systemizes the act of doing chores. This was a project I was very passionate about, and I even created a video explaining how it works.

Malaria Visualization

This is a project I did as a part of the application process for Capital One's Summit. I downloaded data on Malaria from WHO in a CSV file and converted it to JSON. I then wrote a script using Java and Google Maps' API to determine the mortality for children under five for each country and plot the data on WebGL Globe.

Split

This is an ios app I am finishing up with two other people using Swift, XCode, and Firebase. The app is purposed to facilitate the purchasing of communal items within a group of people, such as roommates. It includes a shared list where everyone can add and upvote items (like in reddit). The app can also calculate how much each person owes that user, and displays it in the payment feed. It supports Facebook login.

Bear Maps

I developed the backend of a mapping application of Berkeley using Java, Apache Maven, and images downloaded from OpenStreetMap. It can handle features such as moving the screen by dragging, zooming in/out, and double clicking two points to find the shortest path. https://github.com/3dmund/Bear-Maps
