Zac Yu

Intern (Summer 2017)

I am back at Google (this time at the Pittsburgh office) for another summer as an SWE/SRE Software (Site Reliability) Engineering intern in 2017.

For my 14 weeks there, I will work with Bad Ads (Ads Integrity) team on projects improving detection of issues with their Machine Learning models and automating the follow-up mitigations.

Student (Class of 2019)

I'm currently a Computer Science and Mathematics sophomore perusing B.Phil. Bachelor of Philosophy degree at the University of Pittsburgh. My expected graduation time is April, 2019.

On campus, I worked as a research assistant for LRDC Learning Research and Development Center in the MIPS Mobile Interfaces and Pedagogical Systems Group lab.
I also worked as an undergraduate teaching assistant (UTA) for CS 0401 CS 0401: Intermediate Programming Using Java course (For UTA specific information, please view under "Teaching" tab).

Research Assistant (Spring 2017)

I worked at HCII Human-Computer Interaction Institute @ CMU Carnegie Mellon University on the TutorShop project.
Specificlly, I developed a real-time instructor-facing dashboard to visualize detector data from students and provide cognitive augmentations. Also, I designed and developed a JavaScript + Node.js framework that load and run aggregators as web workers on both front-end and back-end.
We also explored improving real-time feedback experience leveraging augmented reality (with Microsoft HoloLens).

Intern (Summer 2016)

I joined Google as an EP Engineering Practicum intern in the summer of 2016.

During the 12-week program, I worked on Play Movies and TV team, redesigned and rebuilt the new web player for Google Play Movies from scratch with AngularJS framework. Besides implementing accessibility and localization/internationalization support, I also worked with the UX team to adopt Material Design for the new player.
