Kevin Chen

I'M A DEVELOPER, DESIGNER, AND SCIENTIST.

I'm also a student, engineer, TA, musician, mathematician, and entrepreneur. I study Computer Science at Northwestern and conduct HCI and design motivated research with Delta Lab .

I do full-stack mostly-language-agnostic web and mobile development. I also freelance, attend hackathons, and develop for a cause.

In my spare time, I play piano, guitar, and boulder. Some of my side interests include astrophysics, psychology, etymology, and linguistics.

HERE'S A BIT ABOUT WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO:

Indiegogo

Software Engineer / KPCB Fellow

Indiegogo | Summer 2015 | San Francisco, CA

I'm currently working as a full-stack developer intern at Indiegogo, with an emphasis on iOS development. Unlike typical internships, I'm not given a specific project, but instead work as a full member of a scrum team. So far, I've done work in payments, written behavior driven tests, researched mobile frameworks, with more to come.

Delta Lab

Researcher

Delta Lab | March 2014 - Present | Evanston, IL

Delta Lab is my primary commitment during the school year. I'm constantly involved in either [designing, developing, doing, conducting, writing] research [projects, applications, studies, papers], and so on. I've hacked on Glass, ran user studies, transcribed hours worth of my own interviews (incredibly tiring), and flown to South Korea to talk about my projects. I anticipate staying with Delta Lab and working with my advisor, Haoqi Zhang, until graduation.

Speakamos

Freelance Developer

Speakamos | Jan 2015 - May 2015 | Evanston, IL

I worked as a freelance developer creating Speakamos (for project details, see above). My responsibilities here included designing and developing the website and regularly meeting with project stakeholders about any changes in direction or features requests.

Northwestern University

Teaching Assistant

Northwestern University | Sept 2014 - Present | Evanston, IL

I've ran discussion sections, held office hours, and graded exams for EECS 348: Artifical Intelligence and EECS 336: Design & Analysis of Algorithms at Northwestern University. I have generally enjoyed being a TA.

Epic Systems

Software Developer

Epic | Summer 2014 | Madison, WI

I spent this summer working to creating and iterating on a pharmacy kiosk application. My work involved developing in C# and XAML, interfacing with multiple medical records service, and automating allergy and insurance checks.

Northwestern University Information Technology

Consultant

Northwestern University Information Technology | Oct 2012 - Dec 2|14 | Evanston, IL

I work as a tech consultant as part Northwestern University's IT team. I acted as directory assistance, triaged tickets, helped with network management and access, fixed laptops (e.g. virus extermination and OS reinstalls), and reset forgotten passwords.

REACH OUT. SAY HI.

You can probably find me hanging out in the Delta Lab in Northwestern's Ford Engineering building during the day if I'm not in class. Feel free to chat me up, shoot me an email, or add me on LinkedIn.

I'd love to hear from you.
