Ifra Ishaq and Stephanie Yeh will join our research group this summer through the NYU GSTEM program. NYU GSTEM is a summer program for high school juniors that allows them to participate in research laboratories. The NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences offers the program and helps promote STEM to traditionally underrepresented groups, particularly females and minorities. Ifra and Stephanie will be working on a programming language project as part of our funded NSF project on imperative Deep Learning system programming and evolution‘s broader impacts.
Ifra Ishaq is a rising senior at Gravitas, A Global Extension of The Stony Brook School, and lives in India. She is interested in STEM, specifically computer science, data science, and computer engineering. She has always been somewhat of a perfectionist and hard-working. Ifra is incredibly determined and passionate about her future, shown through her academic record and resume. She truly believes that technology is the future and hopes to bring significant change and efficiency to the tech world. Outside academics and extracurriculars, Ifra enjoys working out, playing basketball, and cuddling with her cat.
Stephanie Yeh is a rising senior at Roslyn High School in Roslyn, New York. From a young age, Stephanie has been interested in various STEM fields such as mathematics and computer science. She is constantly eager to learn more about different fields in STEM, which she does by constantly taking various STEM classes in school as well as participating in STEM related activities outside of school. She has previously conducted various behavioral science research studies and is excited to participate in the GSTEM program. In her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her cat, doing various types of puzzles, and listening to music.
