Aarti Bagul

Hi! I'm a senior studying computer science at CAS and computer engineering at Tandon. I'm also the president of ACM at NYU and I'm an organizer for the ACM NY Meetup group. I've been working with Prof. David Sontag on the applications of machine learning to clinical medicine since my sophomore year. Last summer, I worked as a research intern at Microsoft and contributed to Vowpal Wabbit, an open source machine learning system. 

Please feel free to send me an email if you have any questions about WinC/ getting started in CS/ anything at all!

Jess here, coming at you from Brooklyn, NY!! I am a Computer Engineering major. Currently I am all over the place, Haha. I intern with This Also, a boutique design studio that helps companies create new products for a variety of platforms, mobile web, the whole shebang. In addition to working with This Also, I am an instructor for the NYU Education department, teaching Arduino and C++ to high school students, I am building a few android apps, and creating a custom ROM for the Samsung Galaxy s6!! I love the way Computer Science changes the way a person thinks. Most of the time I’m coding, but I also love going to art galleries, working out, and vlogging. 


Secretary, Graduate Chair
Bisakha Ray

I am a PhD student in Biomedical Informatics at the NYU School of Medicine. I work with Dr. Rumi Chunaraon combining multiple modalities of data for influenza transmission network inference. At NYU, I have also worked on multimodal integrative predictive modeling and analysis of cancer and on reverse engineering of underlying causal networks in high dimensional temporal biomedical data. In addition to academics, I also love yoga and hiking.

Radhika Mattoo

I'm a senior Computer Science major who grew up in northern Connecticut with my parents, an older sister, and 2 insane dogs. I loved CS from the very start (Intro to Programming, specifically), and am always eager to learn new languages or learn new applications for CS. If I'm not coding, I'm probably looking at dog pictures, hanging out with friends on my roof, or in Tompkins Square Park.

Leslie Manrique

I am junior from Long Island, NY majoring in Computer Science with minors in Mathematics and Web Programming & Applications. I recently declared my major in CS as I originally intended to study Biology (Pre-Med) but felt that Computer Science was my passion. I am currently just trying to survive my classes. I am fascinated by both bioinformatics and data science. After graduating, I wish to use the skills I learned to help revolutionize the health industry. In addition, I like weightlifting, going to the movies on weekends, and playing with my 6 puppies.

I am a junior studying Computer Science and urban studies in the Gallatin School of Individualized Study. I'm passionate about creating applications that make cities more inclusive and better places to live. Last summer I interned as a mobile developer at SAMSUNG SDS and this year I am excited to be a part of Accenture Technology. When I am not freaking out about classes I am usually reading beauty blogs or dreaming about traveling.

Mahataz Khandaker

I am a sophomore hoping to major in Computer Science and minor in Business Studies. I lived in Queens my whole life yet still feel like a tourist in this amazing city. For the past summer I was a TA for the Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program. 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 play water sports.

Ashley Teoh

Hi! I’m a first year 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.

Fadumo Osman

Fadumo was born in Toronto, Canada and grew up in San Jose, California. She is a sophomore majoring Computer Science and spent this past summer interning at SanDisk. She'll be working at DoSomething.org this semester and preparing for the upcoming elections as Deputy Communications Director at College Democrats of New York. Feel free to ask her about photography and the best coffee shops in the city!

Betty Bei

Hello! I'm a junior studying Computer Science and Mathematics at NYU. I grew up in the California Bay Area and after my studies I hope to return there to join the tech community. This past summer, I graduated from Fullstack Academy's immersive program where I learned a huge new set of web development skills. I'm looking forward to a fun year of hackathons and other projects. However, when I'm not coding, I do enjoy walking around the city and eating all the good food it holds.
