Kelvin Koon

I am a Firmware Engineering Intern currently working at Tesla. Previously, I had the opportunity to intern with incredible engineers at Amazon and Netgear. I graduated from the University of British Columbia, specializing in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

My interests are broad. I'm especially interested in distributed systems, security, and robotics. During my studies, I worked on autonomous soccer playing robots with UBC Thunderbots. I was also deeply involved with UBC ECESS and UBC IEEE through mentorship, treasury, and event photography. You can read more about my time at UBC here.

I'm most excited about bettering myself and others around me wherever I go. I'm always interested in learning new things and having fun with it. In my downtime, you can find me bouldering, figure skating, or reading.
