Biography: I am a junior at the University of Illinois, with an interest in data science and analytics. I work with technology services while I am on campus. A few of my hobbies include playing the drums, soccer, and bike riding.
Why Information Sciences: With time and teachings from various classes, I came to learn that information science is not a simple field to define. The truth about information science comes to a simple understanding, in which the field can be described as both multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary. I believe this to be one of the greatest strengths within the field and one of the most exciting traits that I know I will find in future classes and career path. The fact that one can become knowledgeable across different disciplines while working towards the same goal of understanding the relationship between people, information, and technology is something I wish to be a part of.
Campus Involvement & Experiences: College and Community Engagement Intern for Chicago Scholars, Technology Services at Illinois, Economics Club, Illinois Promise Council, Young Researchers Project with Dr. Magee
