ABOUT

Hey what's up! I am Dylan Dong. Currently, I am a front end engineer at The Sky Guys in Toronto. I obtained my MSc degree in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia. My supervisor is Prof. Tamara Munzner. Before I came to UBC, I received my MEng degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and my BEng degree in Electronic Information Engineering from the University of Science and Technology of China. You can find my résumé here.

In my free time (apart from coding), I like listening to music, reading and travelling. I like pop, dance pop, EDM, dance, alternative, and country music. I'm also interested in music theory.
