About Me


My name is Scott Liu and I am currently a Computer Science Master’s student at Carnegie Mellon University.

I obtained my undergraduate Electrical Engineering degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Before coming to America for my college education, I had lived in a lovely small city in New Zealand called Christchurch for most of my life. It’s a beautiful region of land with the River Avon flowing through the middle.

Although we don’t have a farm like most people do here its a joke, calm down, my family still raises some animals and grows several types of vegetables and plant-life.

Meet Buddy, a recent (circa. 2018) addition to my family.

He is a curious little Border Collie puppy that loves to wander everywhere and has an attention span of 5 seconds. Although we know he is extremely intelligent and picks up new tricks very quickly, he also likes to play dumb and act like a complete goof-ball. He also needs to have cuddles every so often or he will whine.

So there you have it, isn’t he just adorable?

Update 2020: Buddy is a much larger dog now and cannot be stopped. Send help.

While I’m not busy with my Computer Science or Electrical Engineering work, I like to work on my personal projects (you can find most of them on this website). I also love traveling around the world. In fact I’ve already been to many different countries across the globe. It’s not just the iconic sceneries or monuments that attract me either; I have a passion to understand different cultures. You’ll find me anywhere from visiting art exhibitions to exploring the local taverns.

Aside from my projects and travelling, I also enjoy longboarding across my college campus. I occasionally play badminton and tennis too. When I’m indoors, I mostly enjoy playing board games and making food. Mmm food…
