My name is 应睿 (Ying Rui). I like to be called Robert as well. I'm currently an undergraduate student of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University. Though my major is Electronic Engineering, I'm always enthusiastic about computer stuff and keen on software engineering, especially front-end development.
My biggest interest: computers 💻 !
- Software development! Websites, apps, helper scripts...
- Use software! I like resetting Windows installations. 🙃
- Game hardware! I have my dear baby DIY PC.
Second best loved: Games 🎮 !
- Hmm... I don't play on consoles.
- World of Warcraft, Overwatch... Yes Blizzard ❄️ !
- Assassins' Creed Odyssey.
Also, Netflix, movies 🍿 and music 🎧 !
- Sci-fi, fantasy...
I was born in a seaside city in Zhejiang Province, China. Its name is Ningbo which literally means making peace with the sea. So yes, there are large ports in my hometown as well as delicious seafood.
I spent 18 years here and finished my primary and high schools.
Quite luckily, I was admitted into the best university in China and was able to have three nice roommates along the college journey.
Though life is not what I expected, I've always tried to live something good out of it. I decided to pursue my interest in Computer Science instead of Electronic Engineering. I hope I can get what I want soon. 😎
I'm also excited about my exchange experience in University of Utah. Salt Lake City is quite a place to enjoy the life. But I was in too much a hurry and didn't have a chance to go skiing there. What a shame!
I was so lucky to be admitted into one of the world's top CS programs at Stanford University.
I should have been able to go back to the U.S. and start my Master's program in fall, but no one could have seen a global pandemic coming in 2020.
