Brief Biographical Sketch:

Fourth year Engineering Mathematics student with a not-so-secret passion for logical puzzles, mathematical riddles and art. I also enjoy studying theoretical computer science (how do such seemingly magical machines really work?!) and sharing my passion for these topics through teaching.

Ask me about differences between Sweden and America, if real numbers really exist and how my last hiking trip went.

I have not taught at Splash before, but I tutored for many years in the past and assisted professors in university level courses. Looking forward to meeting you all!
