Hi! I'm Irene. I'm a fourth-year computer science major at UC Berkeley. I'm currently a Teaching Assistant for CS61C: Computer Architecture and the historian for Cal Badminton.
This past summer I was a Software Engineering Intern at Databricks, where I worked on architecting and building new notebook features. (I won the company-wide hackathon for two features that are now in production!)
Before that, for two summers I interned at SPAWAR, where I worked on designing and building a nanosatellite emulator called "NERD", and I designed and built microbial fuel cells.
I'm always looking for new opportunities to improve my skills and to learn something new, so feel free to contact me and check out my resume :)
• SHIP: Allows users to suggest new friendships between their second-degree Facebook friends. If the suggested friends approve (“ship”) the introduction, they can begin chatting on SHIP and decide if they want to become Facebook friends.
• NANOSATELLITE EMULTATION & RESEARCH DEVICE: a product that allows for simple, low-cost, and efficient nanosatellite payload testing. Tests for software compatibility and mission survival in different orbits. We call it the N.E.R.D..
• NANOSATELLITE POWER ESTIMATION & ANALYSIS SCRIPT: automates the generation and analysis of nanosatellite orbital data in order to calculate power estimations and produce data graphs. Future applications include optimization of nanosatellite functionality using power estimates. No cool acronym though.
• MICROBIAL FUELCELLS: what I mean when I say I spent my summer playing in mud. A developing alternative for alternative energy.
I've been drawing since I was a little kid. I was part of Innovative Design, a UC Berkeley design club, for three semesters. I also took a drawing class at UC Berkeley and plan on taking painting next semester!
Under construction...In the meantime, here's a poster I made for last year's CMYK Designathon.
