I am a second year undergraduate student majoring in Computational Biology and minoring in Design for Learning on the HPP track at Carnegie Mellon University.
I will be working as a cancer research intern at MD Anderson Cancer Center this upcoming summer in Houston, Texas.
On campus, I am a TA for 15-112 Fundamentals of Programming and CS and TA’d 07-131 Great Practical Ideas for Computer Scientists in the past, a senator representing SCS on the Student Senate, the Director of New Recognition in the Committee on Student Organizations (CoSO), a board member of ACM@CMU, a member of pre-health fraternity Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED), and a regular volunteer at UPMC Shadyside.
Previously, I worked under Dr. Zackory Erickson as a member of the Robotic Caregiving and Human Interaction (RCHI) Lab on designing a head-worn assistive device for mobile manipulators to be used by those with motor impairments, which has been accepted into the 2023 IEEE ICRA conference in London. Additionally, I have also worked with Dr. Shuying Sun at Texas State University for 2 years on analyzing haplotype assembly algorithms and we have submitted our manuscript for publication. I also worked with Dr. Alexander White and Dr. Lauren Ancel Meyers of Texas State University and University of Texas at Austin in 2019 on analyzing consciencious vaccination exemption rates on effects of herd immunity. Additionally, aside from research, I also have significant experience in math education and science communication.
