I am a rising senior at Dartmouth College, where I am studying computer science with a minor in neuroscience. I am interested in data-driven models of learning and pattern recognition, particularly those inspired by the biology of the brain. Due to my late introduction to computer science, I am passionate about teaching and encouraging girls to code and I look forward to taking on more mentorship roles in the future. Outside of academics, I enjoy trail running (even though I’m slow), snowboarding, blogging (occasionally) and leading a mental health outreach organization on campus.
