ABOUT ME

Zhe Kai performing on the drums in Berkeley
I'm an aspiring technologist specializing in Machine Learning & Backend Engineering. I'm passionate about working on cutting-edge projects that push the boundaries of technology. This summer, I'm interning as a Machine Learning Engineer at TikTok, working on the TikTok Live Recommendation System.

In school, I am a 4th-year Computer Science student at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) under the Renaissance Engineering Program, a scholarship program with an accelerated Master's degree.

Outside the rat race, I enjoy coding my own fun projects, playing in my rock band, whilst savoring filter coffee, whiskey, & the smaller things in life. Honestly, I just try my best to live a fulfilling life — don't we all?
