What I hope shines through all these projects is a love for applying machine learning to anything I can get my hands on; whether that means leading teams or building it myself. I thrive working on novel use cases and make sure that what I create touches the hands of real users.

Hi, I’m Chris! I'm currently a Machine Learning Engineer at Collins Aerospace (Raytheon Subsidiary). I'm also an incoming PhD Student in Human-Computer Interaction with a focus on applying natural language processing and symbolic AI to educational technologies.
Outside of work, I love eating food from a variety of cultures, reading tons of non-fiction, and getting to know new people. I enjoy talking about crime/sports documentaries, personal finance, and video/board games. I also grew up in Malaysia where my grandparents own a small fruit orchard (they grow durians!).
Chronic Coder is my Youtube channel. I worked on several projects where I applied machine learning to online games (like Runescape and Neopets). People started seeing how much you could learn from applying AI/ML to these unique and challenging use cases. Hence, we started the Chronic Coder Academy to help people learn by doing similar projects!
This soon evolved into a much larger program called Propel Projects. Now, we put together multi-disciplinary teams of tech beginners to create a working prototype in 2 months. The goal is for them to learn through the application of their skills. It's always fulfilling watching students grow and learn in the process.
