Work experience

Google – Software Engineering Intern – 2016new-google-logo-png

During the summer of 2016 I was a Software Engineering Intern at Google, London.

For a little over 3 months I worked on the Android for Work team, on projects related to Android media and cross-user content access.

Working on Android was very exciting for a lot of different reasons. First, it is a billion-user product, so knowing that my code would end up in the hands of so many people was thrilling. Also, I also loved the Android OS and its development environment, so being able to improve a product that I already loved made me even more passionate about the impact I made. Finally, knowing that my code had to be bullet-proof to security exploits made me have to focus on security a lot more, and think very well about how to implement features before actually coding them.
