I am a student at Santa Clara University (SCU) studying computer science and engineering with a minor in mathematics. As I finish up my last last year of undergraduate study, I look forward to beginning my career in research as a PhD student in computer science!
My research interests lie in computational biology/bioinformatics and parallel computing. I have participated in two Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) programs, one in parallel computing at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) where I implemented a refactoring tool for Eclipse, and another at Mississippi State University (MSU) in computational biology where I analyzed the DNA of dinoflagellate organisms. I am passionate about using my skills in computing for social good.
This year I am the president of the Association of Computing Machinery for Women (ACM-W) and Upsilon Pi Epsilon at my university. So far we have implemented the first student mentorship program for women in engineering at SCU, and brought an unprecedented amount of tutors to help the students in the introductory programming labs. Please email me if you are interested in organizing activities with ACM-W at SCU.
Thank you for looking at my site. Email me if you have any questions, or look at my Projects page if you want to get a better idea of my research interests and skills!
