Congrats, Allan!(more…)
Krishna Desai and Annie Wang will be joining 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 program is offered by the NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and helps promote STEM to traditionally underrepresented groups, particularly, females and minorities.
Krishna Desai is a rising senior at Nutley High School. She has a great interest in Computer Science and is hoping to pursue a career in that field.
Annie Wang is a rising senior at Hunter College High School. Since a young age, she had a great interest in STEM, which, as she grew older, took shape in her deep passion for scientific research and coding, fueled on by the gender gap in Computer Science. She has a variety of research experiences, from working at a biochemistry lab to an immunology lab to a computer science lab, where she is currently working on a study involving Java 8 Streams, a popular streaming API. When she isn’t working, Annie can be found reading, taking walks, writing, or listening to K-pop.
A new doctoral student, Harun Iftikhar, will join our team starting this Fall semester! Harun will enter the PhD program in Computer Science at the CUNY Graduate Center as a half CUNY Graduate Center Science Fellow, which offers salary for two years and tuition for ten semesters.
Harun’s research interests are in programming languages, software engineering, and natural language processing. He previously attended Cornell University for his undergraduate degree as an English major and has attended Brooklyn College and Columbia University for Computer Science as a graduate student. Before college, he went to high school in Islamabad, Pakistan. His hobbies are cricket and tennis. Congrats, Harun, and welcome to the team!
A new masters student, Oren Friedman, joins our team this summer! Oren is a new masters student in Computer Science at Hunter College. Arrive from Queens college, Oren actually began his career as a US Merchant Marine Officer! He has also worked in operations, sales, and software development in the maritime shipping industry and the New York City industrial warehousing market. Welcome, Oren!
Welcome aboard, David Morant, my new research student! David has been awarded a 2017 Undergraduate Research Fellowship from Hunter’s Undergraduate Research Initiative, and we will be working together during the Spring 2017 semester.
David is an avid Android developer that is taking the CSCI 49900 capstone course at Hunter this semester. Along with his group, he has been working on a web-based application, as well as a REST API, for finding available resources on campus. The project also includes an Android client.
David has also worked as an Android development trainer at several companies, including Coalition for Queens and Turn to Tech. He has also interned as a front-end developer and assisted teaching a Python course.
I am pleased to announce that Olivia Moore has decided to join our research team. Olivia is a senior in the Computer Systems Technology Department, and she is interested in programming. Last summer, Olivia completed an internship at the DUMBO Startup Lab, under the Brooklyn Tech Triangle Internship Program, where she worked on several web-related projects.
