A little about me

avatar

Hi, I’m Narun Raman! I pronounce my name like Maroon (with an N) Ramen – quite an unappetizing sight. Some people have interpreted this slightly incorrectly and called me Manun, so maybe I should find a new explanation. Please feel free to email me pictures of oddly colored noodles that you have made or found: narunram [at] cs [dot] ubc [dot] ca.

I am currently a first year Master’s student pursuing Computer Science at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC.

I am very available via email, my basic interests are detailed below and I am interested in working in those areas. Please reach out if you would like to collaborate or chat – I would love to get coffee1.
