Computer Science, ’19
Hey, welcome to my page!
I’m Yingyu, a senior studying Computer Science from Chandler, AZ. On campus, I’m involved in Code the Change, a team of developers and designers who build web applications for non-profits, and AthenaHacks , where we organize an all-female hackathon hosted right here at USC. Outside of class, I also work in the Robotics Embedded Systems Lab where I am currently working on a implementing path-planning algorithms for autonomous aquatic vehicles. I spent this summer in San Francisco working at Slack as a backend engineer intern! On the weekends, you can catch me at football games at the Coliseum or adventuring in Downtown LA!

My Major: Computer Science
How did I pick my major?
I stumbled upon computer science during my senior year of high school, when I took our school’s first introduction class to Java. I loved the problem solving and creativity involved in programming. I knew that computer science had such a wide range of applications, so I decided to major in computer science at USC!

My Netflix Obsessions
This is a super interesting sci-fi show! It really makes you think about the future of technology… and how it could go bad? Great for fans of action and sci-fi!
This is a (kinda creepy) dystopian TV series based on the novel by Margaret Atwood. It has a lot of interesting insights on the role of women in society, and is surprisingly good adaptation of the book!
Favorite USC Tradition
One of my favorite USC traditions is football season! It’s just an all-around great time. I’m always looking forward to game day!
