Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am studying Mechanical Engineering for its application in the automobile industry and the aerospace industry. I am also interested in autonomous systems, particularly in the overlap between computer science and mechanical engineering in this field.

I was born in South Korea but I spent more than half of my life in the Philippines. In middle school, I learned to solve a 3x3 Rubik's cube from one of my friends and from there on, I went on to have fun solving a 2x2, 4x4, pyraminx, mirror cube, and a skewb.

I hope everyone taking my class will learn to have fun with Rubik's cubes too!
