About

A photo of me.

Hello! I am Edward!
I study Computer Science and Mathematics at Brown University. I am originally from Jakarta, Indonesia 🇮🇩 and grew up in Singapore 🇸🇬. I can often be found tinkering with Linux, building fun projects, self-hosting , playing board games, throwing a frisbee, blogging, or memorializing my life through photos.

A photo I took in Labuan Bajo, Indonesia.

My main interests lie in systems, networks, and security, but I am also interested in artificial intelligence, cryptography, functional programming (big fan of OCaml 🐫), computing education, quantitative finance, web design, game development, theoretical computer science, and the list goes on. Outside of CS, I also like learning and discussing economics, urban studies, and mathematical philosophy.

At Brown, I have been involved with Full Stack at Brown and Brown RISD Game Developers. I have also been a TA for an introductory course and a systems course and will be a head TA for computer networks this fall (2024). I also work as a systems programmer for the CS department to help manage department machines, develop software, and resolve security vulnerabilities. I was also a development intern at Serre Lab where I developed ClickMe for human-aligned AI research.

Outside of Brown, I am a Systems Engineer Intern at the D. E. Shaw group on the platform engineering team this summer (2024) in New York City.

While I do enjoy seeing my code work at scale, I also find satisfaction in smaller, personal projects. For instance, I wanted to build a game engine using Rust-specific language features, so I created this. When I needed a simple, lightweight networking proxy for my home lab, I developed this. I also wanted a way to host and showcase my favorite color schemes on the web, so I made this too. Some of these personal projects never see the light of day after I build them, but I find beauty in that as well. The ones I choose to share publicly can be found on my GitHub.

I also love hackathons - working on a fun little project with friends never gets tiring. Some hackathon projects include an AI-powered Dockerfile builder, a gamified programming platform, and a physical adblocker. I am always on the lookout for the next hackathon to participate in!
