About me

Hi, my name is Pirooz, and I am 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 two years, I have gained many Python, Java, and C skills ranging from sorting algorithms, software design, design patterns, and object-oriented programming, and I am eager to learn more. Although I will be taking a break from school for the following two terms, I am still looking around for skills to gain in online courses and videos. I am also quite devoted to my education in Computer Science and Cognitive Science, and I have enjoyed completing the courses.

Furthermore, I am constantly seeking opportunities to improve and display my programming and software development skills. I have worked on a few projects at three different companies in the past few months, including a website made using React that supports teachers in their mental well-being and teaching their students and a cross-platform app made in React Native used to control a device. In the upcoming summer, I will be working for Equifax Canada as a Junior Quality Engineer. I am also open to employment for the upcoming fall term, so feel free to contact me via email, and I will try to respond as soon as possible!

Outside of programming, I spend most of my free time weightlifting, meditating, going out with friends, and playing with my adorable kittens (Check out my Instagram!).
