Biography

Currently, I am a sophomore 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 have been on the Dean’s List for the past 3 semesters (Fall 2018, Spring 2019 and Fall 2019). Outside of school, I’ve been working at an internship at iit/SourceTech for the past four years. At iit/SourceTech, I work on everything from the front-end webpages to the back-end database (more information can be found on my resume). 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.
