Eliah is a second year Computer Engineering major. Her interest in science fiction and artificial intelligence started her passion for computing. She strongly believes that computer science and engineering is the field from which the world of tomorrow will emerge and is proud to help computer scientists and engineers through WIC. When Eliah isn't busy with programming assignments, she enjoys reading, working out, and watching Game of Thrones.
Liz is a third year Computer Science major with interests in artificial intelligence and software engineering. She is very passionate about outreach to women in engineering and computer science, and has spent her years at UCSD helping to increase awareness and accessibility to engineering among young women and underserved groups. Outside of these activities, she enjoys supporting fun events for the engineering community as the VP of Internal Affairs for the Triton Engineering Student Council, tutoring, and spending time with her friends and family.
Helena is a second year Computer Science major (also a passionate foodie) whose interest lies in human-computer interaction. She sees computer science as an art form, where the possibilities to create, and change the way we think and live are limitless. Sites habitually found in her browser history include TED and Yelp. She is fond of independent coffee shops, Parks and Recreation, jazz music and often exhibits symptoms of wanderlust.
Arshi Ansari is a fourth year undergraduate Computer Science student at UCSD. She enjoys CS because she loves to learn how things work under the hood. Her favorite part of software development is testing and debugging. After attaining her Bachelor's degree, she hopes to pursue her education further by either getting her Masters in Computer Science or Business. Outside of school, Arshi enjoys photography, reading and cooking.
Kylie Taitano is currently a second year undergraduate student at UCSD studying Computer Science. Originally attracted to Computer Science because of video game design, she quickly discovered how versatile the field is and is interested in software testing. When she's not down at the computer labs, you can find her playing video games, cooking or baking, or at the gym!
Sneha is a third year Computer Science major. It was really by chance that she took an introductory programming course as a freshman and ever since then she has been hooked. WIC provided her with a means to explore this passion further and she is extremely grateful for that. When not facing the computer, she enjoys art, reading, sightseeing, and hanging out.
Gina is a third-year Computer Science major. As an artist, writer, and coder, she has a zillion ideas on the brain and habitually forgets what sunlight is while in pursuit of them (though she'll never deny a night out for food). Her partners in crime are her F.lux and TextWrangler.

Roshni is a Masters student at UC San Diego, currently pursuing research in power variations in embedded systems, with a strong inclination towards distributed systems work. An Indian by birth and at heart, she loves the opportunity to integrate and assimilate cultures half-way across the globe. While she's not cooped up in a lab engaged in computer science, she's teaching writing to freshmen at Culture, Art and Technology, with themes varying from biomedical ethics to climate change, or relaxing with chai with her friends.
I am PhD student in the Systems and Networking Group at UC San Diego. I am advised by my awesome advisor Geoff Voelker. Currently I am working on security and privacy related projects to detect malicious behavior on the Internet. This includes looking at clickfraud and article spam. Previously, I worked on a project, NEON, that uses VMM(XEN) to provide fined grained data management within a protected network. Prior to Neon, I worked on a data confinement system called Glavlit. I am the grad VP for WIC at UCSD and we try to host various events to encourage and support women in Computing. In my free time I enjoy surfing, cooking and video games.
