Omar Ibrahim he/they

Coffee Hours: MW 1:15-2:15 PM, or by appointment

Hey y'all, I'm Omar. I'm Egyptian-American and I grew up in the Tri-Cities, Washington. I recently graduated from UW with my B.S. in Computer Science. I spent about 3 years of my undergrad as a Teaching Assistant teaching Computer Science classes, mostly 142, so I'm really psyched to be teaching it this summer! I'm very passionate about CS education and ethics research, and I'm happy to talk about either anytime! Outside of academia, I love music (playing, writing, listening; all of it), playing video games (really big into Hades right now), watching anime, and cooking, among other things. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of y'all!

I'm a rising senior from Bellevue, WA in my 11th quarter of TAing this awesome course. I'll be working on the grading team behind the scenes, so you won't see me in section.

I also really enjoy tutoring maths and sciences to middle schoolers and high schoolers, which is what originally led me to begin TAing at the Allen School.
