I am an undergraduate senior at Columbia University, studying Computer Science.wode-ni
I am interested in programming languages, computer graphics, and computer vision. As a visual thinker who loves designing and implementing programming languages, I aspire to create new languages for graphics/vision applications. Currently, I am working on Penrose, a system that visualizes mathematics from high-level, declarative programs.

My name is 倪沃德 ( ní wò dé ) in Chinese. “Nimo” has been my alias since high school, during which I was a street dancer (Popping) and competed under this alias. My first name, often written as “Wode”, looks like a single word in English and people often pronounce it that way. Sadly, I have trouble answering to “ Wode “ under all circumstances. If you find it hard to pronounce ( ní wò dé ) , try “Nimo”.
Broadly speaking, I am interested in many forms of Object manipulation, such as Zippo tricks and pen spinning.
I love billiards, especially Snooker.
