My name is Xavier Smith, and I am a rising junior attending the University of Maryland, Baltimore County where am majoring in Computer Engineering with a double track in Electronic Systems and Communications. I am a part of the Meyerhoff Scholars Program and the URISE Program at UMBC, where both programs help me focus my energies towards pursuing a PhD in Electrical Engineering. My research interests lie in neurology and brain computer interfaces, where I plan to extensively explore the bridge between microelectronics and the human brain. My pastime hobbies include personal STEM projects, listening to music, and hanging out with friends.
