Hello! My name is Arthur Tham, and I am a first-year Master of Science (M.S.), Computer Science graduate student at the University of California, Irvine. I am a game developer and sports enthusiast! I am pursuing my passions in game development and analysis, interactive media, and digital media marketing.
I am a member of the Mental Health in Design lab, but I spend most of the time developing things independently at hackathons and contributing to fellowship programs at my previous involvements in Circle K International at UC Irvine (UCICKI). This Fall quarter, I will be a teaching assistant for one of my favorite UCI classes, ICS 60: Video Games and Society. In addition, I am currently a referee/umpire at UCI Campus Recreation, where I enforce the rules for basketball and softball.
Previously, I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a B.S. degree in Computer Science with a specialization in information. During my undergraduate career, I was an undergraduate research assistant in the Health and Information Lab. I spent four years with UCI Summer Session as a Freshman mentor and a events/marketing assistant, developing new sports programs such as the Edge Basketball Classic. This led to my leadership position as Sports Coordinator with UCICKI, acting as a liaison of the club's teams during competitions with other UCI clubs in UCI Intramural Sports.
I also spent time with Anteater Television, UCI Summer Session, and UCICKI as a social media influencer, gaining experience in both Facebook Live and Snapchat reporting and hosting live-streams on Twitch as both a videographer and reporter.
