Ambitious, resourceful and sharp, I have worked in multiple fields including music and marketing before deciding to change paths and pursue a degree in computer science because I have always had an affinity for the subject, and, of all the skills I have pursued, programming is the one my mind is best suited for. I love learning, problem solving and I derive deep satisfaction from seeing projects slowly come to life.


Chase Phelps encouraged me to apply to this program. I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to learn about computer science research, in order to consider if this is a path I’d like to take for my future. I also enjoy being around people who are more knowledgeable and experienced than me, and I knew I would be in such an environment if I participated in the program.
