from Julia import bio
- I'm a rising senior at Stanford majoring in Mathematical and Computational Science (B.S.) and Computer Science, AI track (M.S.).
- I like teaching computers to see (computer vision), discover stuff (unsupervised learning), and make stuff (generative models).
- I'm the Cartoons Editor at The Stanford Daily, which means I get to guide people who draw cool things and tell meaningful stories.
- I speak Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, computer, and am learning Portuguese (and portugeese).
- I named the research lab I'm in and created our logo—one of my proudest moments as a language + design-loving human.
- I don't leave our first conversation without pronouncing your name correctly.
- The rest of my life includes joyfully doing research, illustrating puns, mentoring and working with other women in tech, demystifying AI, writing satire, singing, taking photos, and clearly, making lists.
