I am pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science with minors in Statistics and Mathematics.

Projects

Quizlet++

I originally created this project after struggling with my general chemistry class. Ever since highschool I have struggled with memorization and given that chemistry is based a lot on memorizing concepts I had to adopt new study techniques. Quizlet helped me a lot, however I did not want to purchase a monthly subscription so I decided to create this project in hopes that it would help me studying. I ended up getting an A in the class and over a 90% in the final. I originally coded this in C++ because that was what we were learning in my programming class, given the programming language name I found it very fitting to name the project Quizlet++. After learning the java language by myself I decided to not only rewrite my program in java, but to provide added functionality as well.


Work Experience

Software Engineering Intern at ERP Consulting Group

I had the opportunity to work at ERP Consulting Group in San Jose, Costa Rica from May 2023 to August 2023 as a Software Engineering Intern with a focus on Full-Stack Web Development and Database Management. During my internship, I developed a web application using MySQL for the data tier, Java for the application tier, and XHTML and JavaServer Faces (JSF) for the presentation tier. This involved designing and implementing the database schema in MySQL to ensure efficient storage and retrieval of data. I also implemented data processing and manipulation logic in Java, applying object-oriented programming principles.

One of my key responsibilities was integrating the front-end components with the back-end using JSF, which enabled seamless user interactions and dynamic content rendering. Working as part of a team of developers, I actively participated in code reviews, debugging, and troubleshooting to maintain code quality and ensure system reliability. Additionally, I collaborated closely with stakeholders to gather requirements and translate them into technical specifications, ensuring alignment between business needs and technical implementation.
