I am a rising Junior Computer Science major and Physics minor at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York.
Computer Science, to me, is the science of solving complex and sometimes multi-dimensional problems. Throughout college and even high school I learned how to become a good problem solver. My approach to problem solving is very systematic but I always push myself to find different or more efficient ways to solve a problem. I am constantly "thinking outside the box" to find a solution to a problem. I try to keep an open mind about problem solving, I frequently ask peers for input on my ideas in the hopes that we can make a better solution together.
In terms of coding languages I am fluent in Java, and I am very well versed in C and C++. In addition, I have a lot of experience in Visual BASIC and pBASIC (Parallax BASIC). I am in the process of learning Assembly and Python as well. I have also used LISP and a variant of C and LISP called (LUSH). Also, I have a lot of experience with web development including knowledge of HTML, CSS, and PHP. I am always trying to expand my horizons so I plan on becoming fluent in as many languages as possible.
My main focus is in the fields of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Since I first started getting into Computer Science I wanted to find new and innovative ways to make computers respond consciously to their environment. Throughout the years I have tried to accomplish this through various projects I have worked on. From robotics to a computer system that acts like a Seeing-Eye Dog, I am always trying to push computers to see how far they can go.
I am always looking for new opportunities to test myself, be it at an internship, doing research with professors, or working with companies.
