About

Hi! I’m Archer Zhang (azhng).

I am a developer, a craftsman, a judoka and a student with endless curiousity.

I am interested various topics of Computer Science including λ-calculus, type theories, distributed systems and graphics. I am currently focusing on learning about foundation of computer graphics by building a graphics engine that support dynamic lighting, ray tracing and phyics. I am also the author of fantastic-kit, a command line tool that increases developer’s productivity.

I have previously interned at Google, Shopify and Dessa. Currently I am working on the SQL Execution Engine at Cockroach Labs.

If I’m in Waterloo, there’s a very high probability that you will find me in UW CSC office. Feel free to come by and say hi if you are ever nearby.
