Hi there! I'm Colin Silesa Software Engineera Data Scientist
I'm a student at Colorado School of Mines pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science, with a focus in Data Science. My interests include full-stack web development, machine learning, and distributed systems.
I fell in love with coding when I was ten and got a Lego robot that I could program to do anything I could imagine. Since then, I've continued expanding my repertoire of skills, through personal projects, formal education, and industry experience. I love learning new skills and technologies!
Outside of software development, I'm also passionate about being a mentor, having been a TA for Computer Science classes for many semesters. In my free time, I enjoy coding, running, solving puzzles (e.g. Sudoku, Rubik's Cubes), cooking, and reading.
