Biography

Currently, I am a junior studying Computer Science at Marquette University.

Throughout college, I have been exploring new fields in Computer Science, both in my classes and outside of school. At Marquette, I am involved with Marquette’s ACM (Association for Computer Machinery) chapter, Student Conduct Board, Cyber Security Club, and MU Habitat for Humanity. I am President of Marquette’s computing honors society, Upsilon Pi Epsilon. I have been on the Dean’s List for the past 4 semesters (Fall 2018, Spring 2019, Fall 2019, and Spring 2020). Recently, I’ve been working with Dr. Dennis Brylow as an Undergraduate Research Assistant in developing Embedded Xinu, an educational operating system used by universities around the world. In my free time, I like to bike, play volleyball, and work one of my personal projects (see Projects tab).

After I graduate in May 2022, I hope to pursue a graduate program in Computer Science. From there, I hope to pursue a career as a computer programmer.
