Daniel (Lin-Kit) Wong

Hello! I am a second-year PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon.
I am advised by Professor Greg Ganger and am a member of the Parallel Data Laboratory.

I am a systems builder and hacker who is interested in the design of scalable and secure distributed systems.

Summer ‘19: I'll be interning at Google in Sunnyvale this summer.

Research at CMU
A few highlights from my past activities:

I'm a tinkerer at heart, and am always on the lookout for novel challenges to work on. In seeking opportunities, I aim to optimise for learning and to do meaningful, impactful work.

I'm a software engineer and have a relentless urge to automate and optimize my process. Code quality and automation (including but not limited to development, deployment, and testing) are a priority for me.

I enjoy gliding, skiing/snowboarding, musicals, singing, Singaporean food, ice skating, long scenic drives (and walks), waterfalls, scuba diving, and good nigiri. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Cambridge and am a member of Churchill College. I grew up in Singapore, am a 华中子弟, and am a proud alumnus of my high school computer club EC3 (where I learnt to code and hack stuff together.)
