I am an 18-year-old fourth-year undergraduate majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Statistics at the University of California Irvine (UCI). I am expected to earn a B.S. in Computer Science in Spring 2022 by the age of 18. Before that, I completed the first two years of my undergraduate education at California State University, Los Angeles before transferring to UC Irvine. I started my undergraduate education at the age of 14 and skipped high school through the CSULA Early Entrance Program. I am passionate about developing efficient and accurate AI-powered solutions to tangible problems.
