Academics

I will be graduating from UC Berkeley in the spring of 2021 majoring in Computer Science. My GPA is 3.86 as of now. Prior to coming at Berkeley, I had always thought of myself as a biologist. During my sophomore year, I fell in love with the intricacies of the field of Machine Learning. Having never coded before, I was intimidated at first yet my curiosity driven by the problems of AI and the excitement powered by the endless possible applications overcame the initial challenges that I faced.

Coursework

Below here you can find a selection of relevant classes:

AI/ML/CV: Data Sciences (Data 8, 100), Artificial Intelligence (CS188), Machine Learning (CS189), Deep Learning (CS182), Full-Stack Deep Learning (CS194-80), Computer Vision & Computational Photography (CS194-26)

Other Computer Science: Computational Structures (CS88+CS47A equivalent to CS61A), Data Structures (CS61B), Computer Architecture (CS61C), Discrete Mathematics and Probability (CS70), Efficient Algorithms (CS170), Designing Information Systems (EE16B)

Mathematics and Statistics: Probability for Data Science (STAT140), Linear Algebra (MATH54)

Expertise:

  • Business: Data and Business (UGBA 96), Future of Industry/Innovation (INDENG 190)
  • Ethics: Data Ethics (DATA 104), Science Technology Society (HIST182A)
  • Biology: Introductory Biology (Biology 1AB), Genetics (MCB140)
  • Chemistry: Introductory Chemistry (CHEM1A/L), Organic Chemistry (CHEM3A/L)

Teaching

Teaching has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had at Berkeley. I have been lucky enough to be part of course staff for the following two classes.

  • Data 8: Data Science
    • Jan 2019 - Present (6 terms)
    • Currently, I am a uGSI (undergraduate student instructor/TA) for one of the largest undergraduate courses at Berkeley having around 1,300 students per semester. The impact of Data Science is enormous and instructing the new generation of leaders in the field is a great honor.
  • CS61BL: Data Structures
    • Summer 2020 (1 term)
    • During the summer of 2020, I had the opportunity to be a 15 hour Tutor for CS61B. Teaching this class, which is more conceptually difficult and hands-on, has shown me the diversity of creativity that all can lead to efficient programming. It also allowed me to more easily understand the thought process behind someone’s code.
