Dana Lee

Hi! My name is Dana, and I am a senior studying Computer Science. I'm originally from the Philippines, and I officially started CS in my 2nd year of college. Last summer, I did a backend internship at Spotify, and built an authorization service which is intended to be used throughout the company. I'm currently interested in learning more about intersecting music and technology, and I'm taking a Music Software class as a result. In my spare time, I enjoy baking, techno music, and yoga.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about CS, tech, WinC, or anything!

Vice President
Emily Fong

Hey! My name is Emily, and I'm currently a Junior at NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study. My concentration centers tech, feminism, postcolonial theory, and critical race studies. In the future I hope to be working for nonprofits and civic tech organizations like Code for America and Civic Hall. Hit me up if you want to talk about tech and activism, politics, data structures (lol), or food! 


Mahataz Khandaker

Hey! I am currently a junior majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Web Programming and Applications. I was a TA for Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program 2016. It was very fulfilling to see the students transform from people who were daunted by code to people who hacked something awesome and meaningful to them. In my free time I love to hang out with friends, explore the city, and occasionally go rowing. 


Ashley Teoh

Hi! I'm a junior at Courant studying Computer Science. I'm interested in distributed systems and software infrastructure. I also like art museums, donut and socks. My favorite books are Americanah (by Chimamanda Adichie), A Little Life (by Hanya Yanagihara) and Crush (by Richard Siken).

Betty Bei

Hello! I'm a senior studying Computer Science and Mathematics at NYU. I'm originally from the California bay area, but I still enjoy the weather over here on the east coast. This past summer, I interned at a gaming platform company called Roblox as a full stack developer. In my free time, I enjoy playing board games, petting dogs, and eating at all the great restaurants in the city. I'm currently writing my undergraduate thesis on putting physical board games in VR and what is impacted as a result. Let me know if you're interested!


Carol He

Hello, I'm Carol! I'm a junior studying CS at CAS with a Web Programming minor. I'm originally from San Jose, but I'll be in NYC for the summer interning at Justworks. Some things I really enjoy are eating desserts, finding new music, and photography! I'm going to be studying CS in Paris in the fall and am so hyped for it!!


Mentorship Coordinator
Ashley Chen

Hi! I’m a junior studying computer science at the College of Arts and Sciences. Before coming to NYU, I lived in Boston, Hawaii, and Taipei. I’m currently conducting software research in Automatic Programming Repair, but I also enjoy teaching students how to solve problems with code. While building a community to help support women in computing is important to me, I also strive to help people find ways to use their passion for tech to tackle societal cultural issues. In my free time, I play tennis, rock climb, and take photos around the city.


Social Media Coordinator
Anandini Chawla

Hi, I’m Anandini! I’m a sophomore studying Computer Science and I’m so excited to be the Social Media Coordinator for WinC. I was only girl in my Computer Science classes in high school so building a community to help support women is very important to me. I’m interested in connecting CS and social good and this past summer I attended a Data Science research program at Microsoft where we worked on improving school choice and student trajectories in the NYC Public School System. 

Aside from CS, I’m passionate about tennis, health and nutrition but also ice cream! I love meeting people, so feel free to reach out! 


Community Coordinator
Flavia Sinha

Hi! My name is Flavia and I'm a sophomore majoring in computer science and minoring in Italian and history. I'm really interested in the intersection of technology and law, and I would love to eventually pursue fields like intellectual property and patent law. Some fun facts about me: I love learning languages and I am a native Italian speaker, I love watching ballet performance and have danced since I was five years old, and my favorite dog breed is Chow Chow (Google them, you will not be disappointed).

Event Coordinator
Isabelle Lavandero

Hey! I'm Isabelle, and I'm a sophomore studying Computer Science and Media, Culture, and Communication. With that, I hope to work at the intersection of tech, media, and social impact in the future. Aside from coding, I love going to concerts and museums, and am constantly drowning in a sea of coffee. Tangential fun fact: I'm from the tropical archipelago of the Philippines. Email me if you want to reach me!


Newsletter Coordinator
Bonnie Zheng

Hi! I’m Bonnie and I’m a Junior studying Economics with minors in Web Programming and Business Studies. I currently work in VC and have experience in bizdev/operations roles. I’m more interested in the business side of tech so reach out to me if you’re interested in that aspect or to get connected to the NYC startup space! I also love hiking, dogs, anything outdoors, but also anything I’m able to do curled up in my bed (ex. writing this bio).
