Pirooz

About me

Hi, my name is Pirooz, an undergraduate student studying computer science and cognitive science at the University of Toronto.

As this is just the start of my career, I am very eager to learn as much as possible in computer science. Over the last year, I have gained many skills in Python, Java and C# ranging from sorting algorithms, software design, and time complexity, and I am quite eager to learn more. Therefore, I am currently learning Javascript and am working hard to improve my programming skills. I am also very devoted to my education and really enjoyed the courses I have completed, currently holding a 4.0 CGPA.

Furthermore, I am constantly seeking opportunities to display my skills while also improving on these skills. I have worked on a few projects in the past few months, including a Discord bot that lets people set reminders for important dates and play Connect 4 with other users or with an AI. Currently, I am focusing on my studies and work at the Kidney Health Education and Research Group. I am also open to employment for the upcoming summer term, so feel free to contact me via email, and I will answer as soon as possible!

Outside of programming, I spend most of my free time practicing boxing, going to the gym, gaming with friends, and playing with my adorable kittens (Check out my Instagram!).
