Hi! I’m Chelsea, and this is where I blog.

As of fall 2016, I work as a software engineer at Wave; we strive to make sending money to and within the developing world as easy and affordable as sending a text.

In 2016, I completed the M.Eng. degree, with a concentration in theoretical computer science. My thesis research was in the field of programming language design and program analysis – in this case, applied to the development of programming languages for computational biology. I collaborated with the Fontana Lab at Harvard Medical School, and was advised by Prof. Jean Yang.

In summer 2015, I worked as an intern on the infrastructure team at Khan Academy.

I graduated from MIT in 2015 with a major in computer science (Course 6-3) and a minor in mathematics (Course 18). In the past, I have taught as an instructor at SPARC, at the USA Biology Olympiad, and at the USA Computing Olympiad.
