EducationPhD student in Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) at the University of Washington. Undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University (graduated with honors in 2015)
ExperienceI started taking computer science classes almost 10 years ago, and since then I have years of college TA experience, and have taught STEM summer camps at the middle school and high school levels.
As a T.A. for CSE 231: Intro to Programming I, I spend at least 2 hours each week helping students fix problems with their code in help room and 2 hours each week teaching a lab session, then spend the rest of the time grading. This course is an introductory Python course geared toward students who have never programmed before, so I have a lot of experience with beginners.
In addition to teaching work, I also have academic research and industry programming experience, including 2 internships at Facebook, so I have a good understanding of how the concepts from class translate into the real world.
HobbiesI have two main interest areas: women in tech and hackathons.
As a woman in a technical field, I have a strong interest in recruiting, retaining, and supporting women in tech. I was the president of Michigan State University (MSU) Women in Computing, and have acted as Treasurer and Corporate Relations Chair in past years.
As a builder, maker, and tinkerer, I have become heavily involved in Major League Hackathons in the past year. The "hack" in these hackathons involves rapid prototyping and idea development -- think "hacking something together", not "hacking the mainframe"! I placed 2nd at HackMIT and 3rd at TreeHacks (Stanford's hackathon) and have created award-winning applications at 4 other Major League Hackathons.
