Hi, I'm Rick.

Hello! I'm a B.S. graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, winter of '18, majoring in Computer Science, minoring in Mathematics, and concentrating in Music. If you're familiar with MIT course numbers, this corresponds to a major in 6-3, minor in 18, and concentration in 21M.

As of now, I've dabbled as a software engineer, trader, researcher, and teacher. I have extensive experience through industrial jobs, personal projects, and leadership.

Though I received several opportunities at prestigious firms such as Two Sigma, D. E. Shaw, Facebook, and more, I have decided to launch the next chapter of my life as an engineer at Nuro. Find more information here!

I hope I can convince you that I don't just work though! In my spare time, I enjoy playing No Limit Texas Hold'em, and during long breaks, I place high value on adventuring. I've traveled to many foreign countries, and I most recently did a solo trip in Southeast Asia in winter '17.

My passions lie within the intersection of computer science, engineering, and statistics. Feel free to contact me for just about anything!



I have extensive industry experience in both software and finance. The following describes my professional experience throughout my entire career.
