About Me

I am Zhao Weng, a student at the University of California at Los Angeles, pursuing Master’s degree in Computer Science.

I have strong programming, analytic and mathematical skills, and I have a wide range of project experience, including web application development and data mining, for example, I developed my research and analytical skills while working on a project to build a comprehensive scholar search engine written in Play Framework of MVC model. I made use of non-blocking features of Node.js to search information from different websites and designed update functions for convenient transformation of data and preparation for PostgreSQL query. I have 5+ years of programming experience for scientific research in model construction and data analysis, strong knowledge of computer science, mathematics and statistics, and programming skills in Java, Python, C++, C, Javascript, MATLAB, Database SQL.
