Ian Luo

Full Stack Developer

Hi, I'm Ian. I am currently a full stack software engineer for TripAdvisor. I work in a cross functional team developing new features for consumers using React on the front end and Java in the back end. In college, I was a part of a biomedical tech startup called Acenna with several of my friends, in addition to various side projects. For details, see the portfolio section.

I play the guitar, snowboard and go on backpacking trips around the world. During college, I was a part of the Tufts Quidditch team (yes Quidditch is a thing). You can find my contact information on the left.

Current Location: Cambridge, MA, USA
