Three female graduate students in the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science design and teach the Women's Technology Program classes in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Discrete Math.
Hi everyone! I am very excited to work with you this summer! A little about me: I received dual Bachelors Degrees in Electrical Engineering (Course 6-1) and Physics (Course 8), and a minor in Management (Course 15) before continuing with my Master of Engineering in Course 6. My research at the MIT Organic and Nanostructured Electronics Laboratory in the MIT Research Lab for Electronics focuses on nanofabrication of organic electronic devices (think AMOLED screens); it is an incredible lab that is at the forefront of a number of fields, including solar technology.
Apart from school, I really love comedy, visual art, juicing, raw foods, and spending time with my friends. I am a TA this term and love it, so I thought teaching WTP will be a lot of fun. I will be joining Intel in the fall.
I am an MIT graduate student in the Computer Graphics Group in CSAIL where my current research focus is on analysis/optimization of structures using their 3D geometry. Before coming to MIT, I studied at Princeton University, where I was very fortunate to work on a research project in the Princeton Graphics Group where we studied the problem of Reassembling the Thera Frescoes by digitizing excavated fragments and using computer algorithms of their geometry to automatically propose matches.
I love to read literature. My favorite works include John Steinbeck's East of Eden, C.S. Lewis' Grief Observed, and Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I enjoy biking. I look very much forward to spending a fun summer in Boston with all of you!
I'm a PhD student in the Computational Biology Group in CSAIL. My current research is on developing models and algorithms to understand gene evolution, but more generally, my interests lie in applying engineering tools to biological problems. I also love teaching and have served as a TA or grader for a class every year since my sophomore year in college.
My spare time is usually spent with friends and involves food or Euro-style board games, or when I'm alone, I read or play video games. I also play the clarinet on occasion, and I enjoy going to musicals or the theater when I get the chance. I love traveling and want to spend some time traveling around the world after I graduate.
Residential Tutors are current
female MIT undergraduate students, or recent MIT graduates.
They assist the WTP-EECS Instructors in the classroom, and also live
in the dormitory with the high school students, chaperoning residential
life, creating fun activities and field trips, and helping with homework.
MIT Class of 2014
Hi everyone! I'm a rising junior in course 6.1 (electrical engineering). In my spare time you might catch me in the MIT glasslab blowing glass, painting murals in my dorm, sewing dresses in my room, wandering around Boston on foot, or cooking with my suitemates. I look forward to meeting all of you!
MIT Class of 2012
Hey everyone! I'm a graduating senior in Math and Economics. This fall I will be heading to sunny California to start a PhD in Statistics at Stanford. At MIT I have been involved with the Undergraduate Economics Association, Quiz Bowl, and Concert Band. The rest of the time I like to read mystery novels, listen to music, play badminton and tennis, and explore Boston on foot. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you!
MIT Class of 2011, MEng 2012
Class of 2012
Hello! I'm a graduating senior in course 6-1. Next year I'll be continuing to the MEng. Most recently I took classes about digital and analog integrated circuit design. For my MEng work I'm going to help research the use of photonics in integrated circuits to improve speed and energy efficiency. My favorite circuit element is the MOSFET, which you will learn about this summer! Outside of school, I'm on the rugby team at MIT, but basketball and soccer are also my favorites. I like painting or using color pencils, and I like origami. I'm also a big fan of the solar system, space ships, and learning about other planets.

MIT Class of 2014
Hello! My name is Christy Rogers and I am a member of the class of 2014 studying Course 18 (mathematics). I have been a competitive swimmer for 14 years and I am on the varsity team here at MIT. In addition to swimming, I also like biking, skiing, and tennis among other sports. When I have free time I enjoy reading, playing Frisbee (though I cannot aim...), and occasionally baking. I've also been known to watch Modern Family and/or Law & Order when I can. oh, and I like math too... :) I am looking forward to getting to know you and spending the summer together in Boston!

MIT Class of 2012
Hi! I am a graduating senior in EECS and completing the teacher's education program at MIT. I love teaching and technology, and I'm really excited to combine the two this summer! In my time at MIT, I have been involved in sports, a Christian fellowship group, teaching photography to high schoolers, and taking lots and lots of pictures all the time! I've spent the past two summers in Boston (programming satellites, woohoo!), so I am excited to show you all some of the cool places I have discovered. I can't wait to meet you all and spend an amazing summer at MIT and in Boston!!
Residential Assistants live in the dorm and help with
evening and weekend activities, but do not have classroom or tutoring
responsibilities. Residential Assistants also attended
WTP when they were in high school. They help make a warm community in
the dorm (this frequently involves cooking and baking projects and showing
movies!) and they organize sightseeing trips into Boston
Hello! I'm a rising sophomore, and majoring in Course 2 – Mechanical Engineering. I love the sunlight and sitting on the lawns on campus just letting my skin soak the warmth. In my free time, I enjoy knitting and cutting up t-shirts in new ways. I am very much a hands, crafts kind of person. I'm looking forward to spending a glorious summer with you, giving you a glimpse into the life of MIT! See you soon!
Hi everybody! My name is Callie and I’m a rising sophomore at MIT. I did WTP in high school and it was an amazing program, which I’m so excited to be involved with again! I am currently planning on majoring in Environmental Engineering and have recently started doing some research in the field. In addition to my research, I am a member of dance troupe, the Leadership Training Institute, and am a sister of Alpha Phi. I look forward to meeting and exploring Boston with everybody this summer!
I'm a rising sophomore planning to double major in Course 6 - EECS and Course 15 - Management. I'm also pursuing my Pirate's License (courses in archery, pistol shooting, sailing, and fencing). I attended WTP in the summer of 2010 and fell in love with MIT, EECS, and Boston! In my free time, I love listening and dancing to all kinds of music, exploring Boston, and baking yummy desserts. I can't wait to meet all of you this summer!
