About Me

I’m Eric, a fourth-year student in computer science and economics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. My main interests are in applying data science and geomatics tools to solve problems in earth science, sustainability, and urban planning. I’m also a systems programmer, security enthusiast, and free software advocate, regularly competing in CTF competitions and contributing to several open source projects.

I currently work as an Advanced Research Assistant at UBC's Vancouver School of Economics under Professor Jonathan Graves, helping to develop the COMET series of Jupyter Notebooks teaching methods in econometrics. Before that, I worked as a GIS Developer at the Department of National Defence, and before that as a Geomatic Software Engineer at Xtract One.

In my free time I enjoy hiking, skiing, and rock climbing in the beautiful Lower Mainland with UBC’s Varsity Outdoor Club.
