Women's Technology Program

Computer Science Instructor
I am a third year Ph.D. student in Computer Science.
For my doctoral research, I am interested in combining different
modes of communication (language, vision, etc.) to enable natural
human-computer interaction. I am also interested in many aspects
of Artificial Intelligence. I was born in New York City and grew
up in Seoul, Korea. I recently became a mom to a baby girl, Herin
Jamie Lee, in August 2002. Before the full-time job of being a mom,
I enjoyed cooking, reading and playing golf.
I am a graduate student in Computer
Science working toward a Ph.D. degree. I have broad research interests.
Recently I have been involved with computational biolotgy. As an
undergraduate I majored in both mathematics and biology at Columbia
University in New York. I grew up in Caracas, Venezuela, but have
family in different parts of the globe. At MIT, I'm the vice president
of the International Film Club. I also enjoy doing yoga in my free
I am a first year graduate student in Electrical Engineering department, working in the Harvard-MIT Laboratory for Computational Physiology. Lab research includes modelling heart functions and developing intelligent patient monitoring systems. My current project involves development of an online database to support various research projects within the lab and elsewhere. I received my undergraduate degree in EE from Georgia Tech last August. While there, I played viola in the symphony orchestra and was heavily involved in the student chapter of my local professional society. In my free time here at MIT, I enjoy reading, cooking and training with the MIT tae kwon do club.
Tutors - 2003
Sophomore, Computer Science
Junior, Computer Science
I'm very excited about being a computer science
tutor for WTP. I'm a junior in that major and look forward to helping
people discover, as I did, that its not just about how to keep
your computer from crashing and knowing how to install Linux. I'm
from upstate New York but, aside from not seeing the stars at night,
I love living in Boston. I've been involved with the school newspaper
since I arrived on campus but I've only written one article. Instead
of writing, I do production: layout, design and typography are
my thing. The rest of my free time goes toward reading, cooking,
rowing and hanging out with friends.
Junior, Electrical Engineering
Last winter I participated in the Women's Initiative
program run by Eta Kappa Nu, here at MIT. I really enjoyed giving
high school women a glimpse into the Wonderful World of Engineering™,
and I'm looking forward to continuing to do that this summer. My
academic interests lie somewhere between biomedical engineering and
signal processing and this term I am enjoying a class called Biological
Signal and Image Processing. Last summer I did speech recognition-related
research at Infineon in Munich, Germany, and I very much enjoyed
the foreign setting. Outside of academics, I like to cook and I like
MEng., Computer Science
I am just finishing up my MEng. this year and I was MIT class of 2002 for undergrad as a computer science major. I have been involved in a number of EECS Department programs, including working at IBM through the VI-A internship program, doing my Masters work in theoretical computer science as a Draper Fellow, and being an active member of Eta Kappa Nu, the EECS honor society. Outside of school I am involved in the Panhellenic Association (organization of sororities). I always make enough free time to get a lot of sleep and spend time with my friends. When I get a chance, you might find me enjoying a favorite pasttime of the moment, which includes photography, spinning, urban rebounding, kickboxing, or cooking.
Junior, Math with Computer Science
Hometown: Naples, FL
Hi! I'm one of the very excited computer science
TAs. My academic interests lie in theoretical computer science
(algorithms and such) and my minor is astronomy (physics). Last
summer, I worked on a project called StarLogo as a programmer and
developer with the Teacher Education Program at MIT. StarLogo is
a programmable modeling environment used to teach students about
decentralized systems - systems without a "leader" - like flocking
birds, traffic jams, etc. In my free time, I like to star gaze,
read science fiction and fantasy novels, listen to music and hang
out with friends. I'm also a huge fan of IM Ice Hockey (D-league
... the "I-know-how-to-skate-honest!" league :-) and rollerblading.
MEng., , Electrical Engineering
I'm a Masters of Engineering student in Electrical
Engineering doing research in BioMEMS (we build electrical devices
that aid in pathogen detection). I love theater, playing guitar,
and singing. Visit my web
site for more details.
I'm a senior studying math at MIT. My main math
interests are combinatorics, especially the multiple interpretations
of certain sequences (like the Catalan numbers or the Bell numbers).
I'm also in the Teacher Education Program at MIT, because I like
to teach! I attended a summer program much like this one when I was
in high school back in North Dakota, and it was incredible, so I'm
really excited to be a part of this one. I will be starting
my PhD in the fall of 2003.
