Welcome to my personal website! I am a Computer Science student at Kansas State University.
I have a wide variety of interests, but some topics I am currently exploring are natural language processing, information extraction, cloud computing, and web development on the side.
I enjoy exploring tools that are practical for everyday use. The vast amount of information and technologies out there can be intimidating at times, but I am eager to learn and see where it can take us.
Outside of class, I volunteer with both K-State's chapter of the Society of Women Engineers and K-State's Office for the Advancement of Women in Science in Engineering. I lead elementary and middle school-aged students through hands-on activities related to STEM fields, and have even led a coding workshop once. I really enjoy talking to these bright, young students one-on-one to see what inspires them and what they want to do in the future.
Relevant skills listed in order of proficiency.
- Languages/Frameworks: C#, Java, Python, C, HTML, CSS, Vue.js, Node.js
- Tools and Technologies: Visual Studio, Eclipse, Git
- Industry Knowledge: Object-Oriented Programming, Agile Methodologies, Scrum
- Misc: Elasticsearch, Kibana, MongoDB, AWS EC2
A brief timeline...
I started my internship at FHLBank Topeka, working remotely due to COVID-19.
I participated in my very first hackathon, Hack K-State 2019, where I consumed large amounts of caffeine and got very little sleep. I worked with three other students on a project we named Campus Maps (more information on the "projects" page), which won Honorable Mention. Not too bad for a first-timer!
Sophomore year began for me at K-State. I officially joined K-State Laboratory for Knowledge Discovery in Databases, continuing to work with the Threat Intelligence team on information extraction and visualization tasks. During this semester, I also was employed as an undergraduate teaching assistant for a Programming Fundamentals course (CIS 200), which I really enjoyed.
I spent my summer at K-State as a research intern through the Kansas Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Summer Research Immersion Program. During this summer, I worked with K-State's Laboratory for Knowledge and Databases on a project focused real-time cyber threat event detection.
During my second semester, I began working for K-State's Office of Student Life, where I provide support to students, faculty and staff, and help connect them to on-campus resources. I also provide students information about Student Legal Services and Off-Campus Housing Support.
I began my freshman year at K-State (go cats!). During my first year, I got involved with the Society of Women Engineers, ACM Special Interest Group in Artificial Intelligence, and the Asian American Student Union. I also attended a ton of football and basketball games, which were a blast.
