Jason Chen

Student Systems Engineer

Jason joined the OSL in April 2018 and is studying computer science and mathematics. He joined the lab to work with open source projects and gain a better understanding of how software is deployed at a large scale. During his free time, he likes to watch various sports, including basketball, football, and soccer, listen to Air Traffic Control, and program. He hopes to work in a software engineering-related field after graduation, but if that does not work out, he might go fly planes instead.
