Hello There! This is Camilo

I'm currently in the lookout for work opportunities for next year: Full time New Grad roles (Fall 19').

I am currently a Graduate Student at the University of Waterloo, pursuing a Master's in Computer Science. I'm part of the Data Systems Group (DSG) and my advisor is Frank Tompa. My research interests include machine learning, data analytics and health-care applications. I'm especially interested in using data science and technology to tackle tough problems in the world in a variety of real-life contexts. Before coming to Waterloo, I earned my B.S. in Software Systems Engineering at Icesi University (Colombia), and was a member of the i2t Research Group and the International Center for Medical Research and Training (CIDEIM).

Skillset Overview

Click on the Menu at the top-right corner to explore some of the projects I've worked on

  • Full Stack Development

    My newly adquired interest!, I had a great time at Quip working in this type of role for the 1st time. Knowledge of React, Javascript and of course HTML+CSS (for those times where you want to style it!)

  • Backend Development

    Both my research and industry experience have been focused on this area. My strongest languages are Python (my top choice for ten-minute programs), Java and C#. On the DB realm I've had my fair experience with SQL and related DBMS: MySQL, Oracle, PL/SQL.

  • Research

    I've been part of awesome projects, many of them aiming to improve the life conditions of many people, and also requiring me to learn new concepts, ideas and tools at a fast pace.

  • Teaching

    I've been a TA for a fair number of courses, including: Intro to AI, Algorithms, Data Structures, and Software Architecture.

I Love Discovering
I Love Learning

I'm always excited about new technologies, I like spending part of my spare time experimenting with new frameworks, creating apps, and hacking some hardware. No matter the challenge, it's always exciting trying to keep up with the pace.
If I encounter something I don't know, I'll make my mission to learn how to use it.
I'm not an expert at everything, on the contrary I often make mistakes, but with practice and patience I know I can get better! One step at a time:)

My Hobbies
aka Unhealthy Obsessions

Three of the things I can't get enough of are food, listening good music, and watching TV Series & Movies. I'm especially enticed by pastries and breakfast meals (for me, breakfast is the most important meal). Some of the artists/bands I like to hear are: Goose House, Of Monsters and Men, and Owl City. Among the best shows I've ever watched are: Terrace House (my personal favorite), Ainori, Heart Signal, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, and Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

Thanks for passing by
