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
Jane Choe

Hi, I'm Jane! I'm currently a senior at NYU and I'm so excited to be vice president of WinC! Outside of programming, I'm super passionate about yoga, animals, and ice cream! I've previously interned at SAMSUNG and Accenture for mobile development and SRE, respectively. Please feel free to reach out!


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. 


Design Coordinator
Ashley Teoh

Hi! I’m a second year student in the Liberal Studies Program and am planning to major in Computer Science when I transition to CAS. There’s a quote from Picasso – “everything you can imagine is real” – that encapsulates what I love about CS: being able to make things is really magical! I also love design, poetry, and food! Especially Malaysian food 'cos that’s where I’m from. 

Event Coordinator
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!

Community Coordinator
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! 


Carol He

Hi I'm Carol! I'm a junior studying CS in Courant and minoring in Environmental Studies. I'm originally from the Bay Area. I like building things with code and really enjoy the design aspect of it. Some things I like to do in my spare time are finding new music, longboarding, looking at pictures of dogs, and working out.


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.


Newsletter Coordinator
Alejandra Trejo

Hi, I'm Alejandra! I'm a junior studying Computer Science and Interactive Media. This past summer I was a research assistant at NYU Tandon School of Engineering where I developed an interactive map about the history of NYU buildings. 

I love connecting people to opportunities so I'm really excited to be in charge of WinC's newsletter (don't forget to subscribe to it!). Feel free to reach out if you have an exciting opportunity you'd like to see in our newsletter or if you just want to chat about tech, art, cute dogs or pretty much anything!


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! 


Event Coordinator
Jessica Zhang

Hi, I'm Jessica! I'm a senior studying Computer Science at NYU Tandon School of engineering. I officially started Computer Science when I wrote my first line of code at Brooklyn Technical High School. Ever since then, I was unable to stop so I decided to pursue a career in it. Last summer, I interned at Citi where I created a end to end key performance indicator platform for the Middle Office Client flow that showed business intelligence statistics and health of the logs. In my free time, I love to try out new things. Currently, I'm interested in baking, yoga, working out, and planting! Oh and don't forget eating! Feel free to reach out if you'd like to chat!

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!
