Hacker | Programmer | Robots

Hey, I'm Derek.

I'm a Computer Engineering student at the University of Waterloo. I'm an all-around physics nerd, full-time hacker, and temporarily retired gamer.


In the past, I've designed microrobots for the Waterloo Nanorobotics Group, hacked together some embedded projects, and wrote code for a natural language processing startup called Wriber.


If you're interested in working on something together, shoot me an email! Here are some links.

Current Projects:
