Always getting better


Hey there, thanks for stopping by!

I'm Helen, a fourth-year undergraduate at Columbia University ♔. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor BA's in Computer Science and Mathematics and a concentration in East Asian Studies. I expect to graduate in the year 2020. Previously, I graduated with honors from Stuyvesant High School in the year 2016.

My interests include math, computer science, statistics, business, health, and art. I seek to develop and use quantitative skills to better the human condition and further our understanding of things. I am currently conducting research in the Statistics Department with Professor Tian Zheng. Previously, I performed computational biology research at The Pe'er lab. On the side, I also researched and made stock pitches as a Senior Research Analyst of Smart Woman Securities. Two summers ago, I got to learn about finance by participating in the awesome program Girls Who Invest. Currently, I am working on the client team of the exciting and new Lionbase at Columbia University.

One thing I'm particularly passionate about is teaching and helping others. So the following are some of the most rewarding positions I've been able to hold thus far on campus. Since freshman year, I've actively volunteered as a tutor and served as Treasury Coordinator for One-to-One Tutoring. Currently I also serve as President for Girls Who Code. I am furthermore a Teaching Assistant for the Department of Mathematics, and was previously a Grader for the Department of Statistics at Columbia University.

In my spare time, I enjoy eating yummy food, drawing, painting, listening to music, reading, dancing, swimming, and practicing yoga. I also love traveling and learning new languages.

I am always looking to make new connections and expand my skill set, so if you know of any opportunities or would simply like to chat, feel free to contact me by clicking the envelope icon (✉) above.

Have a lovely day~ ❀
