Math & Computer Science


I’m a Math & Computer Science junior, and I’m writing from Budapest, where I’m studying computer science for the semester. When I’m at L&C, I’ve been involved as an RA in Akin, a member of the Student Alumni Association, Finance Committee, and Admissions. This past summer, I worked as a Rogers research intern with L&C’s Dr. Peter Drake building convolutional neural networks and coevolutionary genetic algorithms for Computer Go. Looking forward, this Spring I’ll be studying in Ecuador, learning about biodiversity in Ecuador and hopefully becoming fluent in Spanish!
