Hi everyone, I’m super excited to meet y’all this semester! In no particular order, I prefer musicals over concerts, cold over warm weather, dancing over singing, and sushi over tacos. Feel free to talk to me about great restaurants, cool study spots, and of course, CS 88 :)

Hi! I'm Nicholas, and I'm a third year Computer Science Major from the San Gabriel Valley. I like playing video games (I probably spent too much of my summer playing Valorant), and every once in a while I'll go outside for a run (but not really though). I look forward to meeting everyone!

Hi everyone! I am a third-year EECS major from near Dallas, Texas. In my free time, I love binging a variety of TV shows, making desserts (and eating them :p), and working on a bunch of different fine arts hobbies (dancing, violin). Feel free to email me if have any questions or just want to talk. This is my third semester on 88 course staff (2nd time as a TA) and I am super excited to meet you all virtually!

Hi everyone! I’m Kevin, a 4th year Data Science major and CS minor from Irvine, So Cal. While I’m not analyzing data or programming/coding, I like to appreciate the humanities in general. Specifically, I love music, especially classical music or just any classics in general. I also love learning languages and enjoy talking/typing in French. Feel free to talk to me in any of these topics, in either English or French (or Python print statements and strings).

Hey all! Exciting to be teaching this semester! I’m a junior majoring in CS and I’ve previously mentored CS88 before and TA'd for 61BL this summer. I really enjoy doing: tennis, ice skating, weight lifting (pre-quarantine), petting my dog and following current events! Now at home, I started getting back into gaming. Feel free to talk to me about anything and come to office hours!
