Hi! I'm Brian, a junior at Harvard College living in Winthrop House, studying computer science and linguistics. I'm the head course assistant for CS50, Harvard's introductory course in computer science, and I'm the digital strategist at The Crimson, Harvard College's student newspaper. I've also previously worked for 3P Speech and the National Speech and Debate Association. I'm interested in technology, language, education, and public speaking.

Frameworks and Libraries
I've listed some of my projects below:
Science Alliance Network connects students interested in doing research with older mentors, allowing them to collaborate on experiments. The service also helps teachers and administrators to organize science fairs, track progress on science experiments, and ensure the safety of each project.
I've done a lot of work on The Crimson's design team to build tools that help create graphics for the paper's stories. Among these projects include a quote card generator, and a line and bar graph generator.
You can find the source for some of the infographics that I designed for The Crimson's 2017 commencement here.
The Extemp Timer is meant for extemporaneous speaking competitions, and can be used by extemp prep room proctors to manage when speakers should be drawing their questions and leaving for round. I was an extemporanous speaking competitor in high school, and since graduating have found myself running numerous extemp prep rooms: this tool was designed to make the job easier.
