Hi everyone, I’m super thrilled 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 everyone I'm Lukas, a 3rd year CS major from the bay area. This is my second semester TAing for CS88 and I'm excited to meet you all!
